Ever since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement, a growing number of solutions-oriented initiatives have sought to provide support to youth-led innovations in business, charity, and education, with the simultaneous objectives of mobilizing youth skills in support of global problem-solving and addressing the challenges young people face in creating and scaling up their projects.
The Youth Solutions Program by SDSN Youth is one of these initiatives. Since the publication of the first edition of the Youth Solutions Report in January 2017, the Program has grown exponentially, quickly becoming a reference point for discussions around the need to build innovation systems that are both youth-inclusive and aligned with the SDGs. As a consequence, the activities of SDSN Youth have been recently expanded with the launch of the Youth Solutions Hub, a multi-stakeholder online community that seeks to facilitate the dissemination of funding and capacity-building opportunities for young innovators, as well as the creation of meaningful partnerships between innovators, experts, investors, and others supporters.
This webinar seeks to introduce the Hub through a lively conversation between the individuals and organizations that have already registered to it, while also giving everyone else the opportunity to provide relevant feedback and inputs for the further development of the community. In particular, the webinar will feature a thorough discussion of the opportunities that are accessible from the Hub, present the wide range of resources and partners that are contributing to its success, and explain the multiple ways in which interested stakeholders can benefit from joining.
