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 is sustainable. 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, your school will not only give them critical creative skills for future jobs, but also position them as thought leaders in this growing space.

The objectives are focus on the domain of professional teaching skills, related to the new trend called “social entrepreneurship”. From these stand out the acquisition of appropriate skills to support young people in building social enterprises that address the challenges of our time.

No less important, the promotion within specific and well-designed practices, the development of innovative ideas on sociological fields, in which the participation of 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.
