Young people and entrepreneurship - Building partnerships

Brussels, 14 December 2016 –The South East European Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (SEECEL) participated in the international seminar called 'Young people and entrepreneurship - Building partnerships', organised and hosted by the European Commission, Directorate General for Education and Culture.

The seminar gathered more than 60 participants from very various fields: youth work, NGOs, public authorities and agencies, youth organisations, young people, researchers, practitioners, experts, businesses – who deal with the topic young people, education, learning and social entrepreneurship.

The aim of the seminar was to discuss the preliminary findings of an ongoing comprehensive pan-European study 'Youth work and youth entrepreneurship', and so to feed into the completion phase of the study. The seminar also provided a platform for a peer-learning experience as well as networking and cooperation in the future.

Entrepreneurship can be a powerful tool enabling individuals, organisations and communities to successfully deal with multiple contemporary challenges. Many agree however that entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial learning are going beyond setting up a business. It is going towards building on our collective intelligence to identify potentials and deficits in supporting young people to become more entrepreneurial.

SEECEL's representatives were Ms Efka Heder, Director and Ms Maja Ljubić, Assistant Director.
