SEE ME GR&OW project’s aim is to promote an entrepreneurial mindset and culture among young people, networking opportunities for business development, to cultivate the unique skills of every participant and help them to think outside the box. Moreover, it intends to create opportunities for exchange of practices and entrepreneurial tips, increase participant’s self – confidence and ensure social justice for all workers and entrepreneurs and stimulate the economy.
The first Learning Event of this project was organised and coordinated by YEU Cyprus in partnership with EKO (Greece), MOJU (Portugal), Bangherang APS (Italy) and ADEL (Slovakia). It took place from 24th to 30th of July in the village of Pedoulas, located in the Troodos mountains of Cyprus, involving 23 participants from the aforementioned countries. During the seven days of the event the group discussed the difficulties that young entrepreneurs and self- employed workers face, as well as sustainable ways of creating entrepreneurial practices and worked on developing their business skills. The fact that each participant had a very different background and interests enriched the learning process and made their contributions valuable and unique. They had the opportunity to share the activities and initiatives they are currently developing: from working as a social media creator to managing a “green” online shop or supporting a family business after studying environmental management. Also they exchanged feedback about the ideas they want to implement in the future.
Furthermore, this group had a special sensitivity towards artistic expression, concretely through dance, fine arts and photography. The artistic aspect and the skills of the participants played an important role during the learning event and added a plus of originality and creativity for addressing topics such as social corporate responsibility or the human perspective of a business. Without any doubt, you will see us continue growing! Stay tuned for our next Learning event which will take place in Italy!
