About us
Young Sustainable Impact (YSI) is working to gather young talents from all around the world to develop solutions for the UN sustainable development goals. We do this through a threefolded mission. First of all creating youth driven sustainable business through an online innovation program. Secondly, we have built and are building a youth-led movement focusing on sustainability that is called Earthpreneurs. Thirdly, through working to influence established businesses and organizations on sustainability-related challenges.
