Update : 22 Jan 2016, 06:37 PM

Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus has been made a member of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Advocacy Group by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon for the promotion and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals

These goals were adopted last September during the UN General Assembly.

The UN chief announced the formation of the advocacy group at Open Forum Davos 2016. The group has been entrusted with the responsibility to advise the secretary-general and work with him to make sure SDGs become a household term all over the world.

Ban also announced that the group will be co-chaired by Prime minister of Ghana Mahama and Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg.

After the announcement, Professor Yunus said that the world had to rethink and recreate the economic framework and institutions that had created poverty and other social problems. He said that these problems could be resolved permanently, and that it was necessary to involve the youth in order to achieve this.
