Friday, March 13, 2015

Visionary social entrepreneur and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 2006 Professor Muhammad Yunus has joined the world’s first global public awareness campaign for solar, SolarFUTURE.today.!

“Muhammad Yunus is a giant who has bent the arc of history to democratize access to finance and energy,” commented Author, Entrepreneur and Stanford Lecturer Tony Seba, who serves as Co-chair of the SolarFUTURE.today campaign.

“His invention of microfinance disrupted finance and gave hundreds of millions of people access to credit to help lift themselves out of poverty. Dr Yunus’s insights and experience will be invaluable in helping the solar community democratize energy and give billions of people access to power.”
