Entreps is the International Board of Business Owners & Start-ups for the UN's SDGs and sustainable businesses. Entreps is present in 126 countries and will soon celebrate the 5th Edition of its Awards, with the participation of 1,000 International Jurors. The Global Entreps Awards reward public figures, outstanding initiatives, successful policies, institutions, start-ups... worldwide, with the condition that they are born and grow sustainable, under the guidance of the United Nations' SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). There are all 30 awards, 30 different chapters for 126 countries, 17 of which are entirely devoted to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals SDGs. Respect to citizens and Nature are in the core of the Global Entreps Awards ever since. The #5Gcitizens International Congress takes place around each Awards' Gala, consistenly since 2015.
This 5Gcitizens’ agenda is not confirmed, it is still a proposal draft in terms of dates, workshops’ labeling and speakers starring. It is yet to be confirmed by the organiser, dependent on the agendas, priorities, partners and collaborators
