Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a social entrepreneur?
Do you want to improve intercultural or interfaith relations in your community?
Do you have the courage to challenge yourself?
Then you might be who we are looking for!
Here’s why …
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations is organizing a 5-day training event in collaboration with the Fondazione CRT and the Italian Government, which will bring 20 young people from the Euro-Med region to enhance the skills needed to become a young social entrepreneur for intercultural and interfaith dialogue.
In addition to the training, these 20 young adults will network and receive feedback from peers, experienced social entrepreneurs and a professional fund-raiser. The training will take place in Torino, Italy, 11 to 15 February 2013.
We are looking for young adults from the Euro-Med region between the ages of 18 and 35 who are new social entrepreneurs in the sector of intercultural and interfaith dialogue, or who have a great idea that could become a social enterprise in this sector.
There is no participation fee, and all participants will be provided with round-trip international tickets to Torino as well as accommodations, meals and visa support.
