Young entrepreneurs kick-start green summit in Copenhagen 

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 summit.

“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.
