03: Critical Success Factors of Entrepreneurial Education

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The most important aim of education is to prepare young people for their participation in society. At the same time, youth unemployment is a serious problem. Is Entrepreneurship Education the response and is it suited to prepare young people both for the labour market and for taking their own initiative? Which attitudes, skills and knowledge do we want young people to acquire? How can we promote a positive image of entrepreneurship? Why are national governments so slow in implementing the European Commission’s recommendations? JUNIOR Alumni will join the discussion.
