The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition is an activity within the framework of the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Important Notice!

The finalists will be determined according to the “Personal Activity Indicator” algorithm:

  1. The entrant’s personal engagment among the Entrepreneurship Campus community by commenting and giving advice to other entries.
  2. The number of meaningful comments the entrant’s idea/ project has received from the online Entrepreneurship Campus community.
  3. The number of online courses and related exercises in entrepreneurship education (eight courses in total) the entrant has taken. The online training is free of charge.
  4. Special assignments the entrant has done. Special assignments in entrepreneurship education will be given to members of the Entrepreneurship Campus as the Competition goes onward. Special assignments will be posted on the News & Blog webpage.
  5. The number of votes the entrant’s idea/ project has obtained by 15 August, 2018.

The “Personal Activity Indicator” clearly and deliberately rewards entrants who participate actively within the Entrepreneurship Campus. A bar will be displayed at the top of every single entry once that entry has been accepted and posted on the competition website. This bar measures, on a scale of 0-10 (0 stands for “no activity” and 10 for “excellent activity”), the activity factor of each entrant in relation to all other entrants’ activities within the Entrepreneurship Campus. In that respect, the bar (0-10) may increase and decrease as the competition goes onward depending on the entrant’s active engagement in comparison to his or her fellow entrants’ engagement within the Entrepreneurship Campus online community.

(The weighing of the above five rules are not made public in order to avoid manipulation).

  1. Its good, i think the selection will be very fair.

  2. Fantastic! ! I hope I will be the winner.

  3. I am still struggling to see my votes and comments.
    I want to know the process to voting. Sometimes Vote page open sometimes I cannot see it.
    Can some one help me to do properly.

    • Dear Kusum,
      Don’t worry, because your project is open voting and commenting as it is published in the ‘Best Projects 2017’ category. When you vote, it isn’t possible to see the vote button for 24 hours. You have to be more active with the other member of the campus by commenting their entries and sharing meaningful suggestions. You may also ask your friends to support you. They need to register in order to vote or comment your project. We wish you luck.

      • Dear Campus-Manager I m receiving the feedback from the people who are supporting my project , they are telling me that even if they didn’t vote but they see the message that tell them , #you already vote for this idea# and sometimes the boton for vote is not showing.

    Does it matter when does one join the competition, because for sure some people can join later, which is a challenge to obtaining voters. so does this competition regulations cater for that as well?

    • Dear Oguta Job Francis,
      As you can see on the website timeline, the deadline for votes and comments is on August 31 while the deadline for entries is on July 31. Votes are only one of the factors that define the finalists of the competition. Please, find here more information about the way how the finalist will be determined.

  10. This is a very good method of selection of winners

  11. I really like the idea of the Personal Activity Algorithm!
    Sharing perspectives will really help us, the entrants develop entrepreneurship capacity and engage ourselves in meaningful networking.

    Hello all,

    What does it take to receive the first assignment?

  13. Please, how can i canvass for votes for my idea?

  14. This platform is the best educative platform urging us to demonstrate leadership to help society following the SDGs

  15. Please I want to find out if one person can vote twice?

    • Dear Emmanuel, here you can find an explanation of the voting system. Anyone that wants to cast a vote, will need to authenticate him/herself with an email double option.
      They will insert their email, and a verification URL will be sent to them. After clicking the URL, they’ll have 15 minutes of time to vote for a given idea/project once a day. After this session expires, they can no longer vote, until the upcoming day (24 hours later). Someone can vote more than one entry during the 15 minutes time limit, but only one entry in 24 hours.

  16. Dear Campus-Manager,
    I suggest we build an app for this platform to make more mobile friendly . what do you think. It’s can be a special assignment for this Bach competitors. The last online training I watched taught me how to make work interesting at the same time profitable. So I suggest we create a mobile app for this platform. You have a good team to this year to do this.

    Thank you

    • Thank you, dear Emmanuel, for your suggestion. We will do the utmost to deliver the best experience to all the members of the Entrepreneurship Campus.
