EUROPENEURS: European Young Entrepreneurs
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The Erasmus+ project EUROPENEURS, European young entrepreneurs, comes as an answer to the need of training young European students to be people with a proactive attitude when facing the challenges and opportunities that life offers them at the present and will offer them in the future. There are people who are and act naturally in this way, with an entrepreneurial attitude which drives them throughout their lives. However, in the majority of the cases, the learning and the training we have received condition our way of facing the situations ahead of us. Therefore, the partners in this association of schools believe that by providing the young people with a good training in entrepreneurship, they will undergo a change of vital attitude: not conforming to reality as it is but transforming it and molding it to bring happiness to people.
Moved by this belief, we have designed a project whose objective is to train young European students to develop an entrepreneurial attitude in all their vital aspects (personal, educational, social and working areas). This project will be developed in the next two years offering 250 young students from the 6 partner schools the chance of being trained and living significant experiences to become entrepreneurs.
We will set off with 14-15 year-old students and, as the project develops, they will learn to identify their assets and strong points, to collaborate with the rest of the young Europeans in the generation of creative ideas as answer to international challenges and to use communication strategies to present their ideas. They will, definitely, receive the suitable training and will put them into practice experiencing thus that they are capable of transforming the reality they have chosen to alter. Finally, these young students will have a better preparation to become generators of jobs for themselves and for the others. This is, nowadays, a priority in many European countries and this can be an adequate answer to this need.
The activities will be focused on the fulfillment of these objectives and the methodology used to put them into practice will be mainly active, cooperative and experimental: search for information and research group work with the assumption of particular responsibilities, making up of different and innovative solutions which will be presented as prototypes to be assessed by experts in different fields.
These ideas or innovative solutions to challenges or opportunities from the reality around us and from the European reality will be presented to the general public in the International Contest of Young Entrepreneurs and will be validated by the presence of experts who will act as counselors and jury when they have to evaluate the proposals.
All the process of learning, experiences and creation (attitudes and values of the young entrepreneur, generation of creative ideas, techniques of communication of innovative ideas) will be recorded in the Guide of the Young European Entrepreneur which will be jointly prepared in the different meetings of learning, training and teaching and in the Portfolio of the Entrepreneur which each of the participants in the project will have to work on.
The impact that the project EUROPENERUS is expected to have over the participants is that they improve both their abilities and their attitudes in relation to entrepreneurship, their skills, self-esteem and confidence when facing the challenges and problems that life may bring them. The students will feel better trained to lead, first their school works and, later, their school, social and work tasks. It is expected to have a long term benefit on the students because what they need is a change of mind to face life in a more critical and proactive way becoming generators of job opportunities for themselves and for the others.
The teachers are expected to improve their teaching competence, which will also influence their own personal satisfaction and their valuing of their daily work as active trainers who help students with the necessary skills.
Parents will be moved by their commitment to the education of their children and by an improvement in their attitude to support them in their future innovation initiatives.
