GEE (Green Entrepreneurs Europe) is an ERASMUS+ project, developed by 11 partners from 5 European countries – UK, Latvia, Romania, Spain and Bulgaria.
The project aims to develop the competencies of schools and teachers to provide meaningful entrepreneurship learning for the green economy. A sense of initiative and entrepreneurship is an essential transversal skill identified by the EU both to create jobs in the future and in transformation towards a green economy. In moving towards these goals, the project increases the relevance and attainment levels of pupils studying entrepreneurship.
GEE seeks to provide learning for pupils based in the real world of business and entrepreneurship, to enable them to turn ideas into action. By focusing on the skills and competencies for the green economy, GEE invites schools, teachers and pupils to think more creatively and innovatively about how they can develop entrepreneurial ideas that provide jobs and conserve the natural world we depend upon. The project also supports teachers to integrate entrepreneurship into their subject area which is been identified as a challenge for teachers and barrier to increasing the relevance of entrepreneurship education.
