Youth Co:Lab, co-created in 2017 by UNDP Asia and the Pacific and Citi Foundation is a multi-dimensional and multi-level response to tackle the challenges young people face by positioning youth front and center to find solutions to today’s most pressing problems. Youth Co:Lab aims to establish a common agenda for Asia-Pacific countries to invest in and empower youth to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs through leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship.
UNDP India and Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog have joined hands to strengthen the youth-led innovation and social entrepreneurship ecosystem through Youth Co:Lab India. The fourth edition of Youth Co:Lab India focused on identifying and supporting youth climate and green entrepreneurs. Youth Co:Lab 2021 invited youth-led early stage social enterprises or innovations working in the space of circular economy and waste management, sustainable transportation and e-mobility, sustainable tourism and sustainable food tech.
UNDP India and AIM, NITI Aayog are looking for partners, ecosystem players, experts and other stakeholders to co-create a first of its kind, multi stakeholder alliance for climate entrepreneurship in India. The Climate Entrepreneurship Hub (CEH) aims to create an enabling environment for climate entrepreneurship and promote green innovation. Entrepreneurs are vital in addressing climate change and promoting sustainable and resilient development. They hold huge potential for enabling mitigation and adaptation on local and regional levels. Such climate entrepreneurs face distinct challenges and barriers in scaling up their venture. The stakeholders working in the space of climate action and entrepreneurship through the Climate Entrepreneurship Hub can support the climate startups through different stages of their journey with mentorship, capacity training, networking, incubation, visibility, grants, and investment, among other kinds of support.
This is an opportunity to actively imagine, build and steer the landscape of climate tech developments that will shape our future. If you are an organization working in the domain of climate action and entrepreneurship, we invite you to add your expertise and collaborate to design an enabling national platform for climate entrepreneurs by clicking on the "Call2Collab" button below.
