GreEntrepreneurship - NEWSLETTER 2 - Jun2016 - Page 3

EDITORIAL Welcome to the second issue of the Greentrepreneurship newsletter! Following the adoption of the educational manual for youth workers and the successful training course in Portugal, partner organizations are focused on implementing local activities and disseminating the project results. In the coming months, each partner organization will support the youth leaders that attended the training course, in implementing what they learned. The training course aimed to develop youth leaders’ skills in promoting green skills for youth employability, and to train them in delivering a green entrepreneurship educational program for young people. They will pilot-test this acquired knowledge in their local environment by forming groups of young people who are not in education employment or training (NEET). These young people will be trained and provided with the support necessary for them to plan innovative green business ideas, thereby promoting active participation of youth in the green labor market. We invite you to read this newsletter and discover what can be done to challenge and support young people around the world in developing green business ideas. about the project and its results, including examples of good practices and interviews with green entrepreneurs.
