Green Fellowship for Entrepreneurs in Sustainability
A Green Fellowship Programme has been established, in the framework of the 2012 Student Summit for Sustainability held at the Multimedia University in Nairobi, Kenya. The summit focused on developing a common understanding of a green economy and how youth energy, action and innovation can be harnessed for an enhance impact in sustainable development.
The fellowship offers multiple learning, networking and mentorship opportunities aimed at sharpening skills of at least 20 well selected students to start Green Careers. Green Fellows will learn tips and strategies for building an effective organization strategy (profit, non-profit- with or without business character), raising capital and growing the organization.
A special workshop on “Green Entrepreneurship” has been organized, providing a catalyst for summit participants to make use of the visions and inspiration generated into something to pursue in their professional careers.
