Description

The SEYW project is aimed at creating synergies between the social entrepreneurship and youth work. The youth work needs constant innovation and entrepreneurial attitude to face the challenges that European youth nowadays meet. Youth workers need to be ready to answer to these challenges in order not to let youth down and to offer them support and inspiration for becoming changemakers.

The project is designed to give the opportunity to youth workers to acquire appropriate knowledge on social entrepreneurship, to compare the different perceptions of the meaning of social entrepreneurship in Europe referring also to the different legislations in force and to share good practices of social entrepreneurship methodologies that could be taken as examples and replicated.

The project’s target groups are youth workers active in the field, interested and motivated in acquiring and willing to share innovative methods to support youth development, and staff of the organizations partners of the project.

The Project Coordinator – TDM 2000 is joining efforts with the Project Partners - Co-Actions (France), Art Square Luxembourg asbl (Luxembourg), MTÜ Sotsiaalsete Ettevõtete Võrgustik (Estonia), Law and Internet Foundation (Bulgaria), Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (Greece), to achieve the results set out in the project, i.e. to create an inspiration paper to explore the meaning of social entrepreneurship, as well as an online simple virtual working space and to realize a compared analysis of the different working models.

The project is implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth.
