ONE WORLDcitizens connects young people, aged 10 to 30 years from Europe, Africa and Asia to share ideas for social and ecological change, to be trained in social entrepreneurship and to create change together, based on the 17 Global Goals. For two important reasons: to enable youths to create a better life, society, future perspective and to create their own jobs/startups to increase youth employment.
Today social entrepreneurship is a ‘must-have’ for youth to become strong, entrepreneurial world citizens who are ready to face the challenges of their future and to be able to undertake sustainable solutions worldwide together. The fast way to create this ‘must-have’ for all youth is to enable entrepreneurial young people aged 18-30 years to train youth aged 10-18 years and to inspire them to undertake social projects/startups together, locally and globally. That’s why OWC implements YouthStart in the concept: social entrepreneurship by & for young people.
