Can Social Entrepreneurs help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals? - USA & Canada

This workshop session, Can Social Entrepreneurs help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals?, will be led by Professor Waya Quiviger and is intended to be a dynamic, interactive discussion.

Despite global attempts to eradicate poverty, over 4 billion people still lack access to basic resources and services, such as potable water, basic health services, and primary and secondary education. This session will explore how social entrepreneurs can find innovative solutions for the world’s 4 billion most underprivileged people, and in this way, play an important part in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals of poverty and hunger eradication, access to education for all, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy to name just a few.
