SEEDling: rethinking Sustainability through Environmental EDucation
Start date: Jul 1, 2015,
End date: Dec 31, 2015
The project SEEDling: rethinking Sustainability trough Environmental EDucation is a training course on how to promote social entrpreneurship among young people and who work with them, starting from the local ressources.
The aim is to improve the capacity of bringing the ideas to reality through a project.
Starting from the concern of the necessary change of paradigm in the entrepreneurship world, to be more inclusive with people interested in social and environmental issues, we want to give tools to this people to start their own projects.
We do believe the power of small actions, and the need of promoting entrepreneurial spirit among young people, as the main stakeholder in the future legacy.
Finally, the only way we know to make the previous come true is through education, so this is a chance to come, learn and share!
The place to develop it is Medinaceli (Soria), a small village in central Spain placed 150km far from Madrid. It's a natural and cultural priviledge place where the landscape will be our ally to get inspired.
During one week ( 11th -18th September), and using non formal education methods based on community building and open air activities we will prepare the arena for a rich exchange of ideas, practises and living examples of alternative approaches to work, life and education. It will be, more than anything else, an experiential learning project, where participants will be able to live in a community based group, using local resources and lightweight lifestyles.
We are planning to explore the idea of decreasing the environmental costs of our activities and growing in social relations, mutual learning and happiness.
Some of the activities planned are: walking in the nature, entrepreneurship workshops, coaching, community learning and council, among others.
The target group includes 28 participants among Youth workers, Trainers, Youth leaders, Youth Policy Makers, Volunteers, anybody who is interested in the topic and find it useful for personal and professional development.
With this project we aim to raise awareness on some of the main aspects of the continuing changing society, give tools to the participants to self develop their sense of initiative, and enhance the networking process.
The potential benefits of this action will rely on the capacity of the paticipants to put in practise and multiply the contents of the course once back home, and also the power of networking between the organizatoins envolved.
