Description: “GREENday – Youth Entrepreneurship, Environmental Start-Ups” is a 26 month project aiming to tackle multiple challenges that youth faces today. First of all, it is a reply to the environmental concerns of climate change and pollution to which young people are reacting en-masse nowadays through movements like Fridays for Future or Extinction Rebellion.
The second challenge is the one posed by youth unemployment in a financial and economic context which is globally on its way to transformation, assuming more ethical values, circular economy and green responsibility by the Green sector, as that is the growing demand from the customers and consumers. Therefore, our project aims to build and foster
entrepreneurship competences in young people, starting from an entrepreneurial attitude, and apply it to solutions to today’s environmental challenges and ecological concerns of youth across and beyond Europe.
-To foster attitudes and competences of young people to create their own Green Start-up enterprises, following through their realisation
-To create a local and international support network around the young people’s green business ideas that foster their implementation.
-To create a pilot project that will be easy to budget free create local replications and multiplication of the activities, with usability of the tools we created.
-To digitalise tools and tailor them around the target group to allow reusability and sustainability of the long term perspectives
-To provide visibility and disseminate EU opportunities for young people in the field of mobility, employability, and entrepreneurship.
