PROJECTS: FOCUS ON RESULTS
To anchor the 5th Global YES Summit - Rework the World in tangible action, it takes its starting point in actual initiatives gathered from around the world. These illustrate the emerging new business and organisational models we need for tomorrow - based on new values, organisational designs and uses of technology.
The initiatives are diverse. But they all illustrate ways to combine the necessity of structurally transforming our economy, with the social imperative of providing opportunities for the younger generation through effective job generation and educational initiatives. If adequately developed they all have the potential for large scale mobilisation. They could therefore provide avenues for positive and concrete mass engagement. As such the projects provide tangible examples of the forces that could help Rework the World.
Around 130 initiatives are now part of the 5th Global YES Summit - Rework the World. You can find a list of all the projects here.
These efforts are expected to have generated tangible results already at the Summit in June 2010, where a much larger group, networks, investors and policymakers will come together to further the youth green employment agenda, and help take specific ideas and efforts to the next level.
The projects are gathered under 5 themes:
Complementing these five themes, and cross-cutting, is the theme of Finance/supporting models.
