STOCKHOLM (Xinhua) -- The
next generation of young entrepreneurs from Kenya, South Korea,
Ethiopia and Denmark are actively engaged in the green summit,
P4G, starting Friday in Copenhagen.
During the two-day summit, young entrepreneurs will present
their innovative and tech-based solutions to the climate changes
as well as other global challenges such as food waste, water
shortage and ocean plastic, according to a press release from
“The solutions of tomorrow for solving the current global
challenges should be resolved in collaboration with young
people. Both because they can contribute with their ideas and
approaches to new technology. And because we owe it to them to
include them in solving the challenges created by our
generation,” Ulla Tornaes, Danish Minister for Development
Cooperation, was quoted as saying.
“This is why the P4G Summit builds on collaboration between
countries, sectors and generations. The young entrepreneurs will
inspire us with their inventions and at the same time be
challenged on their use of technology, business plans, and
more,” said the minister.
During the summit, the young entrepreneurs are scheduled to
participate in thematic work sessions on environment and food,
water, energy, cities and circular economy, and present their
innovative, sustainable solutions.
“Inclusion of young tech entrepreneurs in the P4G Summit is
perfectly aligned with the Danish government’s foreign policy
commitment on technological diplomacy and techvelopment. New
technology and the use of data and digitalization are modern
means and intelligent short cuts to create new possibilities for
sustainable growth and development,” said Tornaes.
P4G—Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 -- is
a global initiative with the ambition of becoming the world’s
leading forum for developing concrete public-private
partnerships at scale to deliver on the Sustainable Development
Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
