The Virtual Debate on Entrepreneurship begins in anticipation of the OAS Youth Conference

Washington, D.C. – The present and future of the Americas is in need of socially responsible leaders to to bring opportunities to the vulnerable communities and therefore contribute to our society's democratic values. For this very reason, on October 1st, 2013, began the Virtual Debate on Game Changers of the Americas: Making Money & Making a Difference, as part of the Virtual Forum that runs in anticipation of the OAS Youth Conference: Youth in Action.

The debate is moderated by the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) and looks to promote an open and direct interaction on the impact of change agents in community transformation and integral development. Game Changers are individuals from business, political, social and cultural environments, considered to be entrepreneurs in their sector and who share a common vision on the role of leaders with regards to the challenges faced by our Hemisphere.

The report resulting from the Virtual Forum will be presented at the OAS Youth Conference 2013: Youth in Action, on November 5th, 2013 at the headquarters of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington D.C. The conference is geared towards generating a dialogue between youth and Government representatives, experts and other leaders from the Americas, to be focused on current issues and common challenges, leading to recommendations and proposals for the OAS Member States.

The Conference expects participation by Her Excellency, Margarita Cedeño de Fernández, Vice-President of Dominican Republic and the First Lady of Panama, the Honorable Mrs. Martha Linares de Martinelli. The program also includes an Extraordinary Session of the Permanent Council of the OAS, during which the conference results will be presented and youth will dialogue directly with government representatives.

Young leaders and entrepreneurs from the Americas are invited to take part in the debate so that their ideas and proposals can support the Game Changers in transforming communities and bringing prosperity across the continent. To participate, please register at the Summits of the Americas Virtual Community and you will gain access to the disussion. Through this link to the Debate you can benefit from the tools and resources available on the platform.

YABT also invites youth organizations and those that work with young people, to be part of the initative and promote the Debate amongst their networks and virtual communities. Also, we encourage the facilitation of the participation and input by young people at risk and from mintority communities.
