From Survive to Thrive: Winners Announced

In October 2017 we asked you to submit blogs about your experiences with social entrepreneurship as young people in the Asia-Pacific. We received over a hundred submissions from young people all over the region and we were amazed by their quality and creativity. After some deliberation, here are our top picks. The winner of the First Place category will receive a trip to the Youth Co:Lab Forum in Baotou, taking place in August 2018, and the ten Finalists have had their blogs published here on the Youth Co:Lab website. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to every one who participated- follow our Facebook and Instagram to find out about more opportunities like this!
