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.

Youth development and participation

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development incorporates 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 associated targets, and 232 indicators have been created to track progress towards their realization. The 2030 Agenda identifies the areas in which urgent action is needed to ensure sustainable progress in human development. Among these, the employment of youth (defined as individuals between the ages of 15 and 24) represents a priority area that is attracting growing attention.
