EduGames for Active Citizenship
The project #PlayEurope – EduGames for Active Citizenship aims to raise awareness about the importance of being “active citizens” among young people, in particular students at high schools and universities, using the cooperative enterprise model and social entrepreneurship education to enhance and promote some of the crucial competences that could educate them to become contributing, responsible and critical citizens.
The specific objectives of the project are:
VITECO is coordinator of the project and it develops, together with 8 partners from different EU countries, a “Manual of Success Stories on Social Entrepreneurship”, that inspires and motivates young people to set their social enterprise; and a Step-by-Step Guide “Become Social Entrepreneur in 7 days”, a useful online Guide full of educational games, that has the objective of teaching young people how to start a social enterprise while entertain them.
Expected impact: improvement of specific hard and soft skills of 90 young people/university students & unemployed, through their involvement in the online #PlayEurope Step‐by‐Step Guide and educational games; increase of motivation of young people in setting up their business through demonstration of inspirational examples of successful social enterprises; increase interest of young people in social issues and democratic participation, showing them how and to what extent social entrepreneurship can be a concrete pathway to become better citizens.
