Around 800 participants from 55 countries, including youngsters, experts from the private sector, civil society, governments and academia are participating in the event with the theme - 'Building a new civilization'.
Board Member of Grameen Creative Lab Monica Yunus sang a Bangla song - Ami Banglar Gaan Gai- keeping key members of Bangladesh delegation on stage that that impressed huge international audience in the conference hall and people who   
watched from other global destinations live.
The smart kid - her son - added colour when he started waving a traditional hand fan in one hand holding his mother with another hand.
Later, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus recalled when he first came here alone, then with his daughter Monica and this time with his grandchild symbolising that he wants a beautiful world for all representing these three generations.
"Just take it as a challenge and we'll do that-creating a new civilization," he said.
