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