The creation of opportunities for young people to find employment in productive activities is essential for the stability and well-being of our societies. Youth need meaningful, decent jobs for their own personal development and to stimulate sustainable economic development. Many young people in the developing world face little prospect of obtaining a job in the formal sector and, for many, self-employment is the only option. By earning a living through entrepreneurship, young people can make a crucial contribution to poverty reduction. Youth entrepreneurship is a key tool to develop the human capital necessary for the future, to unleash the economic potential of youth, and promote sustainable growth. Innovation and economic growth will depend on future leaders with entrepreneurial skills and attitudes.
