Europe needs young socialpreneurs (social + entrepreneurs) with new ideas, projects, ways to solve current problems as well as to face new challenges and look for better results.
Entrepreneurial education with civic engagement and social responsibility is a key element to the future of Europe.
Greater Poland Region, EU
Europe needs new ways, new approaches to solve current problems regarding high unemployment among young people, great disproportions between cities and rural areas as well as to face coming challenges (migration, more elderly people, etc.).
These problems cannot be only addressed by NGOs and local governments. We need cooperation with business and especially with entrepreneurs that are socially responsibly.
That is why we need to educate youth towards better understanding of civic and social issues, hoping the future socialpreneurs (social+ entrepreneurs) will find better solutions that will lead to greater development and sustainable growth of Europe.
The project as its activities can be easily adopted and implemented by other EU countries.
We wish to help the young civic and socialpreneurs grow and develop and see the world with social awareness and civic responsibility.
BIG GOAL = next a few hundreds young people changing their way of thinking, mental shift and new businesses with the civic and social understanding and impact (including cooperation with NGOs); more see beneath.
