THE EYES PROJECT
“Eurasia for youth entrepreneurship and social economy” (EYES) is an innovative project that brings together European and Asian non-governmental organizations in order to develop young people’s skills in the social economy field.
We consider the social economy as an innovative and sustainable economic and social alternative. We promote the social and solidarity economy at a local and international level to plant the seeds of a new entrepreneur’s generation and to inspire new initiatives.
The consortium gathers various international partners that are involved in the project realization in order to create and develop the young people’s interest for entrepreneurship and social economy.
The objectives are multiple:
– Foster youth employability and entrepreneurship by offering them the tools needed and by improving their sustainable development knowledge.
– Help youth workers by providing them a special support in the social and solidarity economy knowledge transfer to their young audience.
– Allow social entrepreneurs to develop an international network to encourage youth entrepreneurship in this sector.
From those exchanges and different international meetings since 2015, this website and an international social economy good practices guide (freely available on the website) have been created.
