Globalization and technological progress have led to the world changing at an unprecedented pace, affecting the way we live, work and learn. As young people seek to acquire new skills to navigate their way towards successful futures, transformative entrepreneurial competences such as self-efficacy, creativity and problem-solving have emerged as qualities that are important for the world of work. Entrepreneurial competences are also important contributors to the United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly Sustainable Development Goal 4, on quality education, and Sustainable Development Goal 8, on decent work and economic growth.
