I’m young and I want to participate in the project
BE YOU aims to introduce social entrepreneurship to young people from various social backgrounds in Europe. Indeed, the social and environmental challenges that we are facing are numerous and at the heart of the debates.
Each country will have to reinvent its production and consumption modes in order to make them sustainable and responsible.
BE YOU has therefore chosen to act at individual level by giving youngsters the tools to get started, because we are convinced that individual actions can lead to a collective dynamic with a strong positive impact.
The workshops we are developing aims to raise awareness among young people on these environmental and social issues and to offer them the keys to set up concrete actions, particularly through social entrepreneurship.
In order to ensure a fair social and ecological transition, no one should be left behind on these issues.
It is therefore essential to ensure the transmission and popularization of scientific knowledge to as many people as possible: this is one of BE YOU’s missions.
All of the pedagogical resources will be freely available online and can be used directly by youngsters, but also by teachers, facilitators and educators who want to use them with the young people they supervise.
The specific BE YOU resources will be available online shortly. In the meantime, checkout:
