The YOUTH CO:LAB SUMMIT is co-organized by UNDP and Citi Foundation, hosted at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok in 4 days. The 2023 SUMMIT’s theme highlighted, encouraged, and celebrated the role of youth in our society, with the main topic being “Inclusive Entrepreneurship”. Thereby, showcasing and inspiring youth action from underserved communities, as well as youth contributing to solutions to support the most excluded and hardest-to-reach groups to leave no one behind. WordsMine is honored to become a part of a community of regional and national youth that can become a force to take action and create positive change in social ventures. Especially, WordsMine focuses on Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 10 to positively impact many aspects of education and reduce inequality and discrimination within and among countries.
In this event, WordsMine had a chance to introduce our products, their values, and solutions to potential partners and government representatives from over 20 countries & territories in the Asia Pacific Region.
