31 young people from Spain, Italy, Georgia, Ukraine, Austria and Serbia will come together in Madrid, Spain for a 9 days youth exchange project under the action 1 - Cooperation with the neighbouring countries of the EU Main aim of this youth exchange is to educate young people from 4 different countries in the field of Social entrepreneurship(Hereafter SE), to encourage them to release their creativity and to directly support them to develop and carry out their ideas, in order to encourage them to find solutions for employment. “Socialpreneurship ” will create a space for young people to meet, share, and learn more about social entrepreneurship as a new and creative way to combat unemployment and support others with fewer opportunities. Partner organizations will also benefit from Project, as there will be at least one member from organizations represented. During the project we will discuss youth initiatives, creativity in enterprise, active citizenship and give participants space to create business ideas with social goals and develop new projects for combating youth unemployment and for fostering social peace in Europe. Based on non-formal education methodology participants will take part in role-play, share experiences, attend workshops and open door days, create guidebook about how to start up SE, visit social enterprises etc. By the end of the 8 days each participant will leave with understanding of SE and new ways of overcoming youth unemployment; new project ideas and business plan; New skills and knowledge which can be useful for their personal and professional development.
