Entrepreneurs pour le changement social est un programme d'un an de la Alliance des civilisations des Nations Unies et Fondazione CRT, qui vise à soutenir les jeunes entrepreneurs sociaux dans le Région Euro-Med.

Le programme offre une formation intensive d'une semaine aux entrepreneurs sociaux 20 qui sont sélectionnés au moyen d'un appel d'offres concurrentiel des pays 26 qui bordent la mer Méditerranée. Dix experts de l'Alliance des civilisations des Nations Unies organisent des sessions de formation sur la création de modèles économiques, la collecte de fonds, la création d'emplois, la facilitation de la compréhension interculturelle, l'engagement des communautés locales et la lutte contre la marginalisation.

Par le biais de ceux-ci, les participants appliquent pratiquement les leçons apprises pendant la formation, approchent des investisseurs potentiels, renforcent leurs plans d'affaires et testent leur impact social.
