Youngsters(16 up to 18) involved in the KA1 Erasmus + EYEE “Ethics and Young Entrepreneurs” will be presenting their business idea
Entrepreneurial skills and attitudes are strategic for young people. Despite of this, no European country has fully integrated entrepreneurship education in the education planning system of each government. Only 11 European school system education planning in 28 have a specific strategy on entrepreneurship education.
EYEE intends to broaden and strengthen at European level the local experience of EYE – Ethics and Young Entrepreneurs – an Italian programme for the promotion of ethical youth entrepreneurship born in Prato and in Florence in 2012.
The aim of the project is to help to spread the entrepreneurial culture based on ethics among young people through the fundamental role of the school in a European dimension.
To build a successful business today and tomorrow, ethics is essential. In this sense, success is not only an economic value, which is fundamental and without which we can not talk about doing business but iscreating value for workers, stakeholders, the social and natural environment in which the business grows and wants to thrive in the long run.
EYEE created an e-learning training programme on Ethical Entrepreneurship and a networking platform for youngsters to get in touch with entrepreneurs, professionals and mentors.
The final phase of the projects is the EYEE final contest where the students´ group with the best business ideas proceeding from 6 european countries will have the chance to pitch.
