In the framework of the European Youth Capital, Thessaloniki 2014, the Anna Lindh Foundation is organising “Creative Entrepreneurship, Active Citizenship: Opportunities for EuroMed Youth”, a Networking event to gather Euro-Med youth from ALF Networks.
Through an interactive and youth-friendly process, this event will tackle the concept and process of ‘Social Entrepreneurship’ by providing the participants with the entrepreneurial skills needed to develop innovative ideas and projects to face the current difficult economic conditions and contribute to positive societal change in their communities.
On the other hand, the event will encourage youth to become more community-oriented and locally engaged, hence taking the responsibility of their future into their own hands by becoming active citizens and change agents of their societies.
This activity will be organised in Thessaloniki, Greece, from the 25th to the 29th of September 2014 and will gather around 65 participants from the Euro-Mediterranean region with demonstrated experience in Social Entrepreneurship and Active Citizenship, as well as participants with a basic knowledge of both, willing to implement a project idea. The working language will be English.
The ALF will cover all expenses related to travel, meals, accommodation and visa of the selected participants from 25th to 29th September 2014.
Please find attached the Call for Participants. All interested applicants should fill in the Application Form available at http://www.annalindhfoundation.org/node/add/thessaloniki-event and submit it online before the 22nd of June 2014, 14:00 PM (Egyptian time).
