YY FUTURE CITIES LAB 2019, MANILA
In order to build sustainable future cities by inspiring social businesses, a forum was established with the collective effort of YY Goshti, Future City Summit, Launchgarage, and Grameen Australia. The lab took place in Manila, Philippines for social entrepreneurs who are battling towards a livable tomorrow.
The burning issues of rural unbanked economy and housing with suburban-urban linkage were explored by the experts on the relevant field who scrutinized the challenges under their lens. A major highlight of the event included the ‘Fireside Chat with Professor Muhammad Yunus’, an interactive session where attendees could directly engage with the Nobel Laureate who believed in a world of three zeros -zero net carbon emission, zero poverty, and zero unemployment.
The program further included ‘Interactive Knowledge Sharing Sessions’ and an ‘Intensive Social Business Design Jam’.
