image of World Youth Report 2020

The Report seeks to further the discussion on how youth social entrepreneurship can support youth employment and development while helping accelerate the implementation of the SDGs. To do so, the Report first presents social entrepreneurship and anchors it in the context of the 2030 Agenda. Then, the Report turns toward the situation of youth and examines weather youth social entrepreneurship can offer not only employment opportunities, but also support other elements of youth development such as youth participation. In the third chapter, the Report assesses the potential and the challenges of youth social entrepreneurship. The Report then examines the synergies between technologies and youth social entrepreneurship. The last chapter offers policy guidance to build enabling, responsive and sustainable national ecosystems for young social entrepreneurs.

Recommendations for an enabling youth social entrepreneurship ecosystem

The ecosystems most beneficial for youth social entrepreneurship are those in which targeted technical support as well as tailored support in areas such as education, finance, networking and market-building are provided within an overall environment conducive to conducting business. In other words, an enabling ecosystem for young social entrepreneurs needs to be embedded in a sound business environment. This suggests that while improving the business environment is necessary, it is not enough.
