In its continuous effort in supporting youths to become experts and leaders in various fields and impact their communities, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is organising an event on National Dialogue on Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Vanuatu this week.

Partnering with the Department of Youth and Sports, the event is aiming to strengthen the capacities of these young people by empowering them to design and implement their ideas and business models for social impact in their communities and more broadly, to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Pacific region.

The Youth CoLab also aiming to increase engagement from policy makers to strengthen and mobilze resources that would foster youth social innovation and entrepreneurship.

Commencing today and ending on November 3, the conference will be held at the National Provident Fund.
