Group concept: 

“Social Finance” for youth can  be divided largely into two categories. First, it refers to the notion of youth coming together to form collective financial activities such as forming credit unions, to financially supporting activities, trying to start their own businesses in the competitive market. Second, it refers to various activities/organizations that financially support youth activities, such as social ventures, co-ops and various Not-For-Profit initiatives. These may refer to social economy support centers, investment banks reserved for the youth, etc.

In this group, participants shared with inspiring cases or practices that they know and discussed ideas on social finance to tackle our common social and environment issues.
