Social Entrepreneurship and the Sustainable Development Goals: The Decade of Delivery Part One


Every day for the last decade, 170,000 people have been moved out of poverty, according to the New York Times. As uplifting as this statistic is, the sad reality is that at this pace, we are still not on track to end poverty by 2030.

With ten years remaining until the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) deadline, we face a crucial crossroads to assess what progress has been made on the most important global goals in recent history. This panel will focus on identifying and championing local solutions in a number of different countries around the world in order to meet the SDGs, specifically SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. It will feature industry experts, policymakers, and frontline community leaders who are working collectively to tackle the world’s most intractable problems.

What will our next steps be? And is social entrepreneurship the answer?
