Make people believe that we can send poverty to museums. When I talk about it, people laugh and say, "It's impossible. But when you don't believe something, you can't achieve it. You have to imagine and make that imagination achievable"- Muhammad Yunus

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were eight time-bound goals providing concrete, numerical benchmarks for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions.

The MDGs included goals and targets on income poverty, hunger, maternal and child mortality, disease, inadequate shelter, gender inequality, environmental degradation and the Global Partnership for Development.

Adopted by world leaders in the year 2000 with the attention of being achieved by 2015, the MDGs were both global and local, tailored by each country to suit specific development needs.

The second-class passengers spend all their time trying to be upgraded to first-class status. The boat sinks and the passengers all drown. That is where the present approach to climate change is leading - Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard

Basic Income

 

Fundamental shifts in the world of work are eroding traditional social safety nets.
