Organization. Over the 75 th anniversary of the United Nations, we will celebrate our 10 th anniversary and the 5 th edition of the Global Entreps Awards.
Ever since 2015, when the UN set the Sustainable Development Goals, Entreps gathers together and coordinates over 1,000 Global Jurors (delegates) from 126 countries, our green fuel to feed the Global Jury with paramount projects, initiatives and public figures who make a difference implementing our main targets.
The Global Jurors, who cover all fields of expertise, are assembled around 30 different chapters (below), being the President of each one a public figure.
