About the project:

The project “Social Inclusion through Entrepreneurship ” worked to ensure more inclusion of citizens with fewer opportunities by providing (social) entrepreneurship education. It facilitated the exchange of innovation from Germany, Belgium and Macedonia and summarized it in a joint publication, resulting with a new curriculum as an intellectual output.

The project aimed to develop capacity of educators and leaders who are active and experienced in adult learning programmes, to design and deliver educational programmes, to facilitate inclusion and to initiate employability. This was achieved by supporting the promotion of social entrepreneurship through adult learning programmes.

The project explored the possibilities and tools on how to increase participation of citizens with fewer opportunities in the Erasmus+ projects based on the Inclusion Strategy of Erasmus+ and the European Commission’s guidelines for working with migrants and refugees, and good practices, how the organizations can motivate and prepare people to take active part and to gain new skills that will help them in their social and professional development. In this regards, all selected partners had good practices to showcase and had the opportunity to learn from each other but also to disseminate the learned outcomes to other citizen leaders back home and promote the different practices of entrepreneurship education in adult learning programmes.

This project is funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ programme, managed by the Macedonian National Agency for European Educational Programmes and Mobility.
