Entrepreneurs for Social Change

Along the shores of the Mediterranean the effects of the economic crisis are still being felt with high levels of youth unemployment and a lack of opportunities.

Where the local communities are bereft of economic activity and upward mobility is scarce, innovative social entrepreneurs committed to making positive social change are assuming a pivotal role in the creation of a more promising future for all.

Entrepreneurs for Social Change (E4SC) is a project aimed at supporting young social entrepreneurs from the Euro-Mediterranean area whose business activities seek to create employment opportunities and promote non-violent social change. The E4SC project was devised by the Fondazione CRT in collaboration with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Through a week of training and 9 months of mentoring, 20 young social entrepreneurs from the MENA region are given the chance to acquire the business, funding, marketing and intercultural understanding needed to help take their businesses to the next level and create positive social impact.
