This week-end was sent in Wiesbaden, to attend the "Klassentreffen" (Class Reunion) of the Grameen Creative Lab. The work of Muhammad Yunus, the Grameen Bank and further initivatives and joint ventures to improve the lifes of poor people in Bangladesh were presented. Micro-credits are now even being introduced to the United States of America. In addition to inspiring presentations, we had plenty of opportunities to network with like-minded people, many social entrepreneurs looking at ways to make the world a better place for all people. A World Cafe enabled people to exchange insights. In the evening, the networking continued in the courtyard of a pub in the city centre. On the following morning, we met once again for a common breakfast where new ideas could be generated. New events will be organised by the Grameen Creative Lab all over Germany, to foster social entrepreneurship. Looking forward to meeting you there.

After one year in a tny village on the Northern shore of the lake of Constance I recently moved to the city of Constance. The commuting time is now more than one hour each way, on the other side I can enjoy more cultural activities in the evening. And there is the scenic boat trip on the lake twice a day with beautiful view of the lake.
