UNESCO in partnership with Goi Peace Foundation and Stiftung Entrepreneurship (Berlin) has launched the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition – an exciting new opportunity to develop your innovative ideas and projects to create positive change in your community and the world. The competition provides a global platform for young entrepreneurs who aspire to create positive change in their communities.
By highlighting the best examples of youth entrepreneurship, the competition aims to empower the young generation to take the initiative in social innovation and become pioneers in building a harmonious and sustainable society. With their innovative ideas and leadership, these global citizens will tackle some of the key challenges of today and offer a model of the entrepreneurial potential that will fuel our future.
All participants will receive free training at the online Entrepreneurship Campus. This training provides methods and techniques for developing ideas into solid business models, to turn a budding idea into a fully developed concept, or to improve on an existing business model.
Grand Prize, 2nd Prize, 3rd Prize and People’s Choice Prize winners will be selected in each of the following two categories:
- Best Ideas Category: Innovative ideas and plans to be implemented (by the entrant or by others).
- Best Projects Category: Already existing enterprise which has demonstrated social impact.
Winners will be announced on the competition website, as well as the Goi Peace Foundation and UNESCO websites. Finalists not chosen as prize winners will receive honorable mention.
The Grand Prize winners and the People’s Choice Prize winners will be invited to the award ceremony during the Entrepreneurship Summit in Berlin in October 2014. Here, they will present their ideas and activities to an international audience.For more information, visit this link.
