Entrepreneurs for Social Change (E4SC), developed by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, the Fondazione CRT, and the Italian Government, is a seven day training for young social entrepreneurs. Bringing together 20 young people aged 18 to 35 from the Euro-Mediterranean region, the training aims to enhance the skills needed to boost a business idea with a social mission, and be a powerful motor of economic development and social inclusion.

In addition to this training, the selected youth will receive feedback from peers, mentoring from experienced social entrepreneurs, and will be matched with potential investors during nine months following the training. The event will be organized at Fondazione CRT premises in Torino (Italy) from 16 to 22 October 2014.

There is no participation fee, and all participants will be provided with round-trip international tickets to Torino as well as accommodations, meals, and visa support. Application submissions to the 2014 edition of Entrepreneurs for Social Change are open until 14 July 2014.
