May 15, 2022

Duration: 1. 12. 2021 – 30. 4. 2024

Project reference: 2021-1-DK01-KA220-VET-000024955 

Growing Green project aims to enhance awareness about circular economy and at developing related green entrepreneurship competences, in line with the European strategy on these topics. The general objective of the project is to reinforce green entrepreneurship competences (according to the EntreComp definition of entrepreneurship) among VET students. We will implement an experiential workplace-based model of teaching green entrepreneurship to VET organisations in order to boost quality and frequency of cooperation between VET institutions and local businesses of different sectors. The transnational dimension of the project represents an essential prerequisite for strengthening and promoting among the partners the implementation of this experiential workplace-based model of teaching green entrepreneurship. It is a shared belief of the partners that a common model, coming from cooperation among organisations with different backgrounds, expertise and experiences (VET schools, entrepreneurship providers, organisations expert on circular economy and recognition of skills, companies), will have an additional value in terms of potential and impacts, and can easily be extended to other organisations in other countries. The basic idea is to build a model that, inspired by the European recommendations on circular economy, green capital and entrepreneurship and implemented and tested in different contexts, can be easily used and replicated all around Europe, by raising the awareness about environmental and climate-change challenges and at same time stimulating people in being proactive and undertaking related initiatives.
