Team Wonderfruit has been invited to take part in UNDP’s Youth Co:Lab. Here’s what it’s all about.

Knowing very well that innovative thinking and collaboration is required to achieve their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UNDP has launched a National Dialogue to invite young people with new perspectives, talents and abilities to drive change and shape a better society.

Youth Co:Lab Thailand is an initiative under Thailand Social Innovation Platform, supported by the United Nation Development Program and Citi Foundation, which has invited young people from all over Thailand to submit their ideas for social innovation. The selected teams get the chance to take part in a four-day incubator to develop their ideas under the themes of “people”, “planet” and “prosperity” – the latter of which will be hosted by Wonderfruit.

Selected teams are undergoing preparation via online webinars throughout October and then, over the weekend of 13-16 November, Team Wonderfruit will be among the experts in the fields of technology, development, innovation and business who will be coaching, moderating and judging the final ideas at the incubator, here in Bangkok.

True to our ethos, we’re particularly looking for ideas that answer the question, “How can we make sustainable living more appealing?” We’re very excited to see what ideas, projects and initiatives come out of the weekend, at the end of which we’ll select our winning team, who’ll get the chance to come to Wonderfruit to present their idea and to crowdfund it on Asiola.com
