A new community and global hackathon for earthpreneurs
Empowering youth to solve sustainability challenges by creating measurable impact
We believe that innovation and entrepreneurship can solve most of our challenges in the world, that youth are the driving force, and in collaboration with the experienced and established – it can be done. This movement started as a response to the Paris conference with a group of youth who looked ahead.
Youth spread across the world organizing locally
Thee days-long hackathon addressing the sustainable development goals
Who are combining sustainability and entrepreneurship for solutions
An earthpreneur is a person who intend to make sustainability business as usual. First by addressing the 17 Sustainable Development Goals issued by the United Nations.
The term was coined by the organization YSI (Young Sustainable Impact) in 2016 and has later developed into a global movement lead by youth around the world.
