Outcomes of the activity

Youth for Social and Solidarity Economy is an innovative Erasmus+ project, promoting the good practices in the social and solidarity economy amongst European countries. This project aims at enhancing the mobility of youth workers and youth leaders with previous experience on social economy, future youth leaders, already active or potential social entrepreneurs who are willing to share knowledge, experiences, and good practices on the theme. Participants can further inspire the young people they are working with, to become more active on the field of social economy.
Furthermore, the project aims at supporting the participants on developing business models that have the potential to solve social problems and support vulnerable groups of people.

NGO's and Associations have major part in raising the awareness about social entrepreneurship. We wanted to gather people (youth workers, your leaders, youngsters with entrepreneurial spirit) to start to work on the topic of social entrepreneurship. We want to match people with same interest and work together on something concrete - international platform where in future will be provided information about the social entrepreneurship.
