As part of the project ‘Global Responsibility for the Future’, in which the Centre for European Perspective is collaborating as a partner together with the youth entrepreneurship accelerator “Ustvarjalnik” and NGOs: Forum for Equitable Development, SLOGA Platform and HUMANITAS is coming to an end. The final event of the project will take place on Monday 9 September under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor. The event will feature ten of the most promising young entrepreneurs in the country who can boast concrete business success. The event will be part of a conference organized by the Entrepreneurial Sandbox “Ustvarjalnik” for the 8th consecutive year, at which the President of the Republic of Slovenia will award the title “Best Youth Startup 2019”. The purpose of the event is to promote to the general public that entrepreneurship has no age restriction.
The main objective of the Global Responsibility for the Future project, with the support of NGO representatives, is to empower young entrepreneurs for better global entrepreneurship, promoting a sustainable lifestyle, including respect for human rights, gender equality, the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, citizenship of the world and respect for cultural diversity. Therefore, in addition to the “Best Youth Startup 2019” award, the award for “The Most Globally Responsible Idea” will be given. Young entrepreneurs will also be joined by representatives of the mentoring companies that have helped them along the way.
The activities of ‘Global Responsibility for the Future’ are financed by the Global Education network Europe – GENE and co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the framework of Slovenia’s development cooperation.
