Project Description:Youth Ecopreneurship Sprint (YES)" This is a Youth Exchange for young people who want to learn more about entrepreneurship and ecology. Today, a lot of young people all over Europe show a lack of awareness and knowledge about ecological issues such as recycling and using renewable energy. Additionally, the youth in Europe generally aren’t very knowledgeable about entrepreneurship and starting their own business. We decided to tackle these two issues with out KA1 “Youth Ecopreneurship Sprint” in which we will apply the principles of entrepreneurship to create business ideas that solve environmental problems in our societies. During this project, the participants will get to develop their creative business ideas in an international environment. The participants will learn techniques used when starting their own business and they will apply them in solving ecological issues that are present in our communities. The main objective of this project is shaping young individuals into active members of society who are able to identify ecological issues in their communities and help solve them using the knowledge they will gain here.
