Date: 1-8 October 2012
Venue: Chisinau, Cosnita, Moldova
Pax: Zuzana Uhlířová, Daniel Kunz, Aneta Toboříková
Programme and action: Youth in Action programme, action 3.1.
Our Czech group attended the training course “Entrepreneurship Approaches for Social Benefit”, which was aimed at exploring the concept of social entrepreneurship as an innovative way to solve social problems using entrepreneurial skills and youth voice. Other participants were from diverse countries from all around the world, e.g. the UK, Italy, Russia, Romania, Georgia, Armenia, etc.
The project focused on the concept of the social entrepreneurship in general with specifics on entrepreneur skills, leadership and management, need and problem analysis, funding and financing all being explored in the context of youth organizations and volunteering. In this way the training served a platform for learning how to build a better world in a healthy environment and without poverty, via youth initiatives and social entrepreneurship.
The project had the partnership building element as well, where the partners were able to settle new cooperation and develop common projects for future implementation. Youth in Action Programme was presented and Easter Partnership Window was explored as a possibility to put youth ideas in action.
We did not work 24/7 of course. In the evening we had a chance to get to know other participants more informally during the International dinner and various cultural events. The organisers also gave us the opportunity to visit Chisinau for one day. We experienced Moldova deeply and we are very thankful for it. We hope this was not our last TC.
