“Entrepreneurship education is a relatively new subject, at least in many countries, and teacher education in that area is often event more recent. Discussions in Budapest and Istanbul highlighted that there is already a wealth of didactic material and resources in place but participants stressed the need to deepen and widen existing knowledge and to improve pedagogical tools. Thi’s in turn calls for more research efforts, as pedagogies and didactic tools should be based on good quality research.” (p.60)
Wide range of support measures are required at national/regional levels to support teacher education for entrepreneurship. The curriculum and pedagogy of entrepreneurship needs to be focused on providing teachers with active learning opportunities in experiential environments, and using appropriate assessment methods.

Increased mobility and networking at the European level would aim to foster the development of selfsustaining communities of interest. Such groups can support continuous improvement and innovation on teaching methods, and also help to disseminate their practice and enthusiasm to new teachers.

Our STRET Teacher Toolkit is built on this premise and experience on already built KA2 partnership from 4 counties: Lithuania, Croatia, Macedonia and Belgium. Our STRET Teacher Toolkit goes beyond teaching Entrepreneurship by adding new concepts to the knowledge and practice: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Social Entrepreneurship. These both areas have a room for further research at EU level and thus make this project more relevant and beyond the recognized potential and importance of investment in Entrepreneurial Education.

The project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.

Why Out of the Box International

The seemingly ever-lasting depression of European economies has shaken the very foundations of many European societies. The shear rate of unemployment in Europe and the omnipresent environmental crisis coupled with the often frustratingly slow process of decision making in the EU, are calling for civil society actors to step in and fill the void.

In the aftermath of the 2008. economic crisis, the apprehension of falling under the spell of apathy of economic depression across the continent has not been easy to shake off. However, pinpointing the culprits for the current state of affairs on any particular EU decision maker is not the answer. Nonetheless, the fact remains that the current approach to the economic and environmental crisis hasn’t yet shown the affected citizens the light at the end of the tunnel.

As representatives of the civil society we feel the need to make our voice heard in the midst of the current debate on economic crisis. Being a social enterprise we offer new and feasible ideas in education and community work, creative cross-sectorial cooperation among different actors and strong networking coalitions to turn these dire economic challenges into possibilities through social entrepreneurship initiatives which aim at benefiting wide range of citizens, particularly vulnerable groups and those affected by the economic crisis.

Social entrepreneurship is a simple concept that has been put into practice by civil society actors for the benefit of a specific social group or people, and this is precisely what we want: to create projects and initiatives with fresh ideas in different policies, educational programs or tools, support businesses, empower cultural initiatives and offer different solutions to individuals, corporate bodies, everybody who believe that we can have more Creative, Innovative and Cohesive Europe.
