A Brief Intro

Young Sustainable Impact Southeast Asia (YSI SEA) rallies talented, passionate youths across the region to solve global problems in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our three core areas of focus are:

1.       Circular Economy

2.       Energy Transitions

3.       Food & Agriculture

Our Innovation Programme provides participants with the resources, mentors and facilities they need to transform their ideas into fully-fledged start-ups in just 5 months. The programme culminates in a 2-week accelerator where teams pitch their business models to potential investors. In two years, we have empowered 48 youth to embark on 14 unique start-ups that are currently on their journey to making a positive impact across Southeast Asia.

Our theory of change centres around two principles: Collaboration and Innovation. We exist to empower solutions for a more sustainable future and nurture impact-driven entrepreneurs and young leaders to enter the workforce.

With our growing community of Southeast Asian youth and the increasing tide of attention given to addressing social, economic and environmental issues, we are well positioned to enact effective change.

The YSI story is not just empowering, it is also actionable. If you’re interested, channel your passion and skills to innovate for sustainable development or join our young and vibrant community to find out how you can be help us change the world.
