Creativity is the untapped and innate human resource, whose potential economies have yet to harness. Creativity is the inspirational energy and knowledge that spurs many individuals, including young men and women, to undertake new industrial ventures with a vision of the future transformation of their societies.
This program taps into the creative and innovative potential of young people who look at things through a fresh perspective, often being the ones leading the path towards economies of the future.
Innovation tends to emerge where the value of creativity is favourably perceived by the society, with a high degree of freedom to set one’s own agenda. Where creative talents are better exploited by businesses and supported by institutions, and where competition encourages and most importantly, rewards creativity and entrepreneurship.
The aim of this program is to support the transformation of young peoples’ creativity into culture and technology-based innovation that fosters job creation and economic development.
The program proposes a mix of training and mentorship activities, creativity and capacity boosting platforms, grants and improved access to funding, networking events, job fairs, etc. While it is designed to provide young people with the means that will enhance their creative and innovative capacities in ways that are relevant to their future employability.
