“Welcomeship! Building inclusive communities through community-based entrepreneurship”
Description: The overall goal of the project is to develop, implement and test the “Welcomeship” model” – a model of entrepreneurship learning for young people with fewer opportunities, including young migrants & refugees and local youth. The “Welcomeship” model is based on non-formal learning methods and collaborative practice. It strengthens the interaction of locals and newcomers, addresses the fears and prejudices and fosters community spirit as an overarching goal. Local youth and young migrants develop entrepreneurial ideas which address community issues and build partnerships with stakeholders to bring about positive change in the local communities. This collaboration is intended to lead to openness, tolerance and an atmosphere of togetherness in the community. Ultimately, the “Welcomeship” model aims at becoming a tool for inclusive communities.
Partners: It is implemented by the consortium of nine partners from Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Sweden and UK and coordinated by YEPP EUROPE.
This project is funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union.
