Innovative Citizens for Social Progress

To underscore the role that all EU Citizens play worldwide Entreps AISBL (International Board of Business Owners & Entrepreneurs) organises, in close collaboration with the civil society and the public and private sectors: #5Gcitizens 2018.

 

The event is an initiative targeting the world citizens, especially the EU Citizens, as key players of the Social Innovation the EU needs to raise awareness, engage society from our regions and cities, to finally tackle any ongoing issues to continue to be the continent of Diversity and Tolerance and Social Integration we are.

 

Every year we organise the Global Entreps Awards along with an international congress with plenty of workshops and a two-day peer-to-peer brokerage: #5Gcitizens, being 2018 the 4th edition for the Awards.

 

The event shows a strong commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals Digitisation, Collaborative Economy, Energy Poverty, and Circular Economy for Global Trade, engaging EU institutions and officials, the private sector, the Academia and other international organisations into discussing how to approach these challenges by resorting to new and alternative solutions. Citizens in the middle of it all.
