Every day, millions of children around the world are facing challenges such as climate change, poverty and inequality, which prevents them from living the life they deserve. Drastic measures are needed to tackle this. We cannot continue doing what we did in the past. Instead we need innovative solutions and effective collaboration between sectors. No actor, municipality, agency or organization can solve this by themselves, we need to come together in new ways and innovate how we innovate. During this panel we want to showcase what role grassroots entrepreneurship plays in building a more inclusive and just society.
