Last November URL La Salle Campus Barcelona-organized the first activity EduEmprèn, a workshop on social entrepreneurship that involved more than 600 students from 15 schools of La Salle Catalonia. The activity was the starting point for the project that students from the project I DO Catalonia La Salle developed this course as a new methodology.
Under the slogan “Look, propose and transform!” The project aims to prepare young entrepreneurs committed to their environment, and give students tools to create their own social entrepreneurial project observing their surroundings to find a problem real, identify opportunities for improvement, and propose a challenge that may help.
The areas to be addressed are the people (health, nutrition and education), organizations (including labor, product and financial solidarity) and the environment (waste and recycling, sustainable transport and clean energy). Participants have analyzed the problems they observe in their environment and chosen the theme of the work they do during the course.
