[The 17th Youth Workshop]
The Impact of Social Entrepreneurship
for Sustainable Development
UNITAR CIFAL Jeju/Jeju International Training Center has been organizing the youth workshop on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since 2013 to empower young people to be an active agent for SDGs achievement by 2030. The workshop offers a unique learning opportunity for both Korean and international students in the Republic of Korea to apply the concepts of SDGs into practices and strengthen their capacities to be a global leader through various workshop modules including lectures, group work, discussion, presentation and field trip.
The theme of the 17th Youth Workshop is Social Entrepreneurship for sustainable development, which is being underscored in response to the on-going global health crisis. Social Entrepreneurship, a fast-emerging discipline that creates social impact, has played a vital role to economic growth and inclusion in creating jobs, providing innovative services and products, and promoting sustainable future.
The World Youth Report by Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations (UN DESA) also reaffirmed youth social entrepreneurship as one of the essential requirements to help accelerate the implementation of the SDGs. Through non-profit and for profit enterprises, social entrepreneurs promote a broad range of solutions focused on sustainable development. The impact of Social Entrepreneurship is far-reaching from the use of ethical practices such as conscious consumerism, impact investing, and corporate social responsibility programs to systemic solutions to social and environmental problems.
Through this workshop, participants will enhance their understanding of Social Entrepreneurship in the context of SDGs and pursue their leading roles to achieve 2030 Development Goals.
