"Growing Green" is a partnership between partner organizations in Denmark, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam. The project addresses the need of bringing non-formal education in line with the current global challenges and mainstream Sustainable Entrepreneurship Education as a new core element. A UN report shows that there were at least 74 million young people unemployed in 2015. A further report identifies that temperatures in 2015 have been about 1 degree Celsius above the pre-industrial era, an effect caused by a human-induced global warming.With entrepreneurship being promoting as a tool to fight unemployment, the partners have agreed to be essential that this generation of young entrepreneurs are not only educated in creating financially successful enterprises, but also sustainable enterprises that utilise the worlds natural and human resources responsibly.However, from their research, the partners identified that the concept of Sustainable Entrepreneurship, besides of being relatively new, Education is only slowly evolving with academia and within higher education, being hardly present in the non-formal education with youth. The project entails 6 capacity building activities and one mobility of youth workers. Throughout the project, the partners will create a guide in Sustainable Entrepreneurship Education (SEE), train 70 trainers in SEE in the partners' countries, reach about 275 young people and more than 2000 stakeholders. The guide developed will consists of four parts: 1. factsheets upon local and global implications of unsustainable entrepreneurship, 2. at least 10 non-formal methods in Sustainable Entrepreneurship Education, such as simulations and role plays, 3. Examples of sustainable enterprises created by young people and not only, and 4. A further reading list. Overall, the partner organizations will strengthen their capacity to provide Sustainable Entrepreneurship Education, enhance their international network, renew their educational packages and strengthen the recognition of learning activities they provide, while non-formal education will be revitalized and new forms of youth work will be stimulated.
