The partnership aims to drive development projects in the regions of the Greater Bay Area and Belt and Road emerging cities in Asia, in the pillars of youth development, social (tech) entrepreneurship, enterprise leadership in sustainability governance and smart cities connectivities.

The WeChat Public Account “好城市基金会” shall primarily launch the national youth branding playbook which describes a set of values where young Chinese leaders could position uniquely and friendly to maintain stronger global relevance, public relations and global trust, in the echo of 100th Anniversary of Youth Union establishment in Mainland China.

The playbook will serve as a branding and storytelling guideline to drive substantial vision values, principles and entrepreneurial action roadmaps for creative positive and prosperous impacts to global societies through key initiatives such as “Public Private Partnership by Youth” (PPP by Youth), Future City Summit Annual Meet (FCS) and Public Policy and Innovation Economics Research (PIER).

Continuing Development Program “Public Private Partnership by Youth” (PPP by Youth)

As the core of the For-Prosperity Strategic Partnership, the Good City Foundation and Shimmer SDGs Hub are collectively dedicated to driving deeper engagement of ethnic Chinese young leaders in the public and private sectors in Mainland China and overseas Chinese communities through development program “Public Private Partnership by Youth” (PPP by Youth).

With the support of Shimmer SDGs Hub, PPP by Youth engages more state-enterprises from Mainland China to align the regional sustainability interests in local communities when overseas investment projects are committed as part of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, topping with ESG strategies advised through deliverables of PPP by Youth.

As the global pandemic is more relieved and countries open the borders, PPP by Youth programs shall resume to be implemented in key locations such as Indonesia (Denpasar City, Bandung and Jakarta), Cambodia (Phnom Penh), The Philippines (Manila), Thailand (Bangkok) and new cities such as Gampaha (Sri Lanka).
