My passion - my profession
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Jun 30, 2016
Employment presents the main source of human survival. Unfortunately, due to the lack of jobs the number of unemployed people, especially young people, has nowadays increased. In order to avoid idleness and distress which comes along, and also to encourage young people to cooperate on an international level, we have prepared an international project. The project aims to encourage young people from different parts of Europe to start their own businesses. Since we have find out young people often do not have any idea of what kind of business they could start or they do not have enough knowledge of entrepreneurship, we want to start with a basic idea – turn their hobbies and leisure activities to business.
The youth from six European countries will be able to develop entrepreneurial ideas through workshops, which will be based on the methods of non-formal and intercultural education. They will present their ideas to the public, in collaboration with students of entrepreneurship, at the end of the exchange.
There will be 43 young people and youth leaders from Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Macedonia, Greece, and Sweden, from each country seven participants, on the exchange. The participants will be between the ages of 16 and 30, and we will strive for an even representation of both genders. During the exchange they will, in an attractive and interactive way, learn about the basics which are necessary for the launch of an entrepreneurial idea. Moreover, they will discuss and develop their ideas. At the end of the exchange they will, in collaboration with local university students and high school students, prepare an event where they will present the results of their work on the exchange to their peers, professional public, media and everybody interested.
At the same time we want to encourage young people to open themselves to foreign cultures and nations, as well to improve their knowledge of foreign languages.
The exchange should be, along with promoting the participants to enter a business path, also the basis to similar projects and workshops in Slovenia and abroad, or the start of several activities for the promotion of entrepreneurship, which will be performed by all partner and all interested organizations in their own countries.
