Unemployment, specially youth unemployment, is one of the major social concerns in Europe. This issue becomes more important in the countries where a stagnant economy with no growth prospects is unable to provide jobs for its people. The lack of employment opportunities in many countries makes talk of a lost generation. However, as consequence of the jobs crisis, more and more young are exploring an option of self-employment. Within these options gain strength cooperative models of organization based in peer collaboration and in the economy with “human face”. However, the social economy offers an opportunity for future that is still unknown to most of young people and many of them are still unaware of the advantages of undertaking seeking not only financial performance but also social.
Ideas in Action is a project which aims to spread the concept of social entrepreneurship among youngsters from six different countries. For 7 workdays we’ll gather 24 young people from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Romania and Greece in order to create a space for exchanging experiences and inspiration. Nicentbatcardta .
