Social Entrepreneurship

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

Social entrepreneurship is changing the nature of social interventions. It is fast becoming a preferred method of “doing good” because it promotes sustainability.

The idea that social entrepreneurs are fundamental to our society and our ability to provide solutions to the myriad of social problems, is not new. By engaging your students with social entrepreneurship, you will not only give them critical creative skills for future jobs but also position them as leaders in this growing area.

Objectives: focus on professional teaching skills, related to the new trend called social entrepreneurship”. Specifically, the acquisition of appropriate skills to support young people in building social enterprises that address the challenges of our time.

This course also intends to promote the development of specific and well-designed practices and innovative ideas in sociological fields. Class activities designed to illustrate the importance of working with others to solve problems using creative thinking and sharing resources is also one of the central aspects of this training course.
