Aims & objectives

The main objective of the project was to enable young people with entrepreneurial skills in order to support them in creating new ’alternative’ workplaces for themselves and for others, and this was achieved since we selected participants who had social business ideas or who were already working in an NGO. During the training and during the combination of non formal learning processes youth workers were developing these ideas: starting their own NGO or social entreprise and applying for international projects in the future, develop their already existing NGOs and projects, realize local initiatives in the topics of sustainability, creative recycling, human rights, environmental protection.
Another objective of the project was to support sustainable thinking of the participants, so that when they are designing their entreprise, they take in consideration being sustaiable towards the environment.

The project involved 29 participants coming from 6 countries: CZ, Hungary, Spain, Italy, Greece and Bulgaria.
Participants of the training course were youth workers, coaches, trainers, volunteers of youth associations who wanted to take a step forward and make a living out of the activities they are already doing.
