Topic introduction:

Brisbane Rotary is embarking on a one-of-a-kind journey to support young social entrepreneurs globally. Over the next two years, alongside local Rotary Clubs, the Rotary Club of Brisbane will work in partnership with not-for-profit social enterprises from Argentina, Belgium, Bulgaria, China and Romania within the "Youth Employment and Social entrepreneurship" (YES) project. The project is supported by the European Union Erasmus+ Programme, forming the backbone of a second partnership for transforming the way young people are engaged in entrepreneurship. This partnership is between the Rotary Club of Brisbane and the Queensland University of Technology's Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research. Join the meeting to hear from the source about the international opportunities we are about to open.
