YSIP Kick-off Event

We would like to welcome the designated teams on board as we officially launch the Young SDGs Innovators Program!

Background Information: The Young SDG Innovators Programme (YSIP) is an accelerator to engage your company’s brightest and best talent in not only advancing your sustainability efforts but also driving innovation and delivering tangible solutions with potential market value for your company. During the YSIP, young professionals in Global Compact companies work in teams to explore new innovations and learn how to identify opportunities and develop solutions that are relevant to their companies and advances the SDGs. Companies are able to take advantage of the UN Global Compact’s global-local structure, teams will have the opportunity to work with and learn from other young professional teams and leading sustainability and innovation thinkers in their country and across the world.

On October 8, we will be hosting our first Kick-off Workshop at the Beirut Digital District allowing our different teams to meet, discuss, and align their expectations of the program. They will also get the chance to understand the different characters and role of each of the following: Innovators, Champions, and Mentors.

We are proud to announce that GCNL President Mrs. Dima Jamali will inaugurate our session followed by a video-message from the CEO & Executive Director of the UN Global Compact Ms. Lise Kingo.

Our Programs Manager Mrs. Bruna Elias will clarify and illustrate to our participating teams the flow of the entire program and will accordingly answer any inquiries that may be raised.

We will leave the floor for our Innovators, Champions, and Mentors to introduce themselves, which will be facilitated by GCNL Executive Director Mrs. Dina Harake

Our objective behind the Kick-Off session is to enable all teams to capitalize on this opportunity for self-enhancement, and eventually deliver optimal results.

Don’t Worry! We will go over the entire Program Curriculum so that you can leave the room knowing exactly what your role will look like as a SDG innovator in our YSIP Program.
