Our Story

Young Sustainable Impact was started in Oslo, Norway by a group of youths passionate about bringing young people around the world together to tackle sustainability problems.

They saw a lack of start-ups in the field of sustainable development aimed at alleviating bigger world problems, and decided to bridge the gap between idea generation and impact, as well as engage youth in sustainability and entrepreneurship.

In 2017, with an overwhelming response of 10,053 applicants from 170 countries, YSI Global gathered 25 outstanding participants and expanded to 5 new countries within 12 months.
