Wake up and be enterprising!
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2015
The "Wake up and be Enterprising" was created among young people and for young people to meet the needs and problems of young people across Europe. The originators of this project is a group of young people from Lodz associated with the Foundation FERSO, which has a long term experinece with the subject of civil society and youth empowerment. One of the activities in which we were able to take part was the project "Don`t be afraid! Change!" implemented in 2012. It inspired us to write a youth exchange on entrepreneurship.
The main objective of our activities is to raise awareness of their own sense of agency and role in creating new opportunities for young people to develop and strengthen the entrepreneurial characteristics. We want to ensure that the process will work by stimulating creative thinking, increase competence in the sense of initiative and self-realization, improved knowledge of existing tools and techniques to assist in being eneterprising. This will be achieved through informal activities and workshops such as group work, discussions, creative thinking techniques, simulations and intercultural educational activities.
The project will gather in Lodz 25 young people between 18 and 25 years old, from Polish, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia, who are aware of the challenges that await them in the labor market and want to increase your chances and make better use of the first real opportunities to create their own business, checking himself as eneterpreneur. During 11 days they will share their experiences and acquire new knowledge and skills in the field of entrepreneurship.
We firmly believe that by equipping young people in knowledge, competence and skills we will not only increase their chances of finding a better job in the labor market, but also help in everyday life. Besides, after returning home, participants will share their knowledge and experience with the sending organization and the local community. A good example of flowing of our actions will also be in our local comunity in Lodz.
