Globally, 197 million people were unemployed in 2015. The number of jobseekers is expected to increase by 4.8 million over the next two years, most of which will occur in emerging economies. There are increasing calls for better policies and actions to address “long-term unemployment, under-employment and working poverty”, including investment for sustainable enterprise expansion and job creation.

Recognizing that reliance on government plans and efforts alone is not enough, innovative and enterprising solutions to address the unemployment challenges are in great demand. Hopes are heightened by the success stories of modern-day entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Muhammad Yunus, Jack Ma and others, as well as the unicorns – start-up companies that are valued at over US$ 1 billion each – represented by the likes of Uber, Grabtaxi, Xioami, Airbnb, Dropbox, Flipkart and so on. Such high-impact entrepreneurship can help to transform economies by creating a large number of jobs and generating significant wealth.

UNESCO, BINUS UNIVERSITY and Universitas Padjadjaran are co-organizing the 5th UNESCO-APEID Meeting on Entrepreneurship Education, Transforming Entrepreneurs for Sustainable Businesses and Job Generation, on 26-29 September 2016 in Jakarta and Bandung, Indonesia, to enhance the quality of entrepreneurship education in Asia and the Pacific region. For more information, please refer to the concept note.

About 100 participants are expected to attend the meeting. Due to limited space, those interested in attending the meeting should fill in an application form by Friday, 12 August 2016
