From January to November 2015, Global Entrepreneurship Week Poland Foundation (Poland), Youth Business Poland, The Edward de Bono Institute (Malta) and Peace Child International (UK) carried out the project "Best practices in teaching entrepreneurship and creating entrepreneurial ecosystems in Europe", financed by the European Commission as part of Erasmus Plus programme. 

The project was a response to the low levels of entrepreneurship amongst young people, leading to maladjustment to the modern labour market, as evidenced by making rash decisions about educational and professional paths, the necessity of taking a job below ambition and qualifications and high levels of unemployment. Entrepreneurship, understood in a broad meaning, is an attitude and approach to life (diligence, activity, courage, self–reliance) that is an essential component to successful and productive inclusion in the labour market and society.  

As part of the project, partners from three countries  (UK, Malta and Poland) collected and described effective practices in the field of entrepreneurship education and ecosystems. The opportunities for the exchange of experience consisted of international project meetings, during which participants gathered information about methods and tools of teaching and spoke with practitioners, teachers and NGO representatives. They also visited schools, universities and offices of NGOs.

The result of the project is a publication of conclusions, translated into six languages (Polish, English, German, Italian, Spanish and French).

Links to this publication in all six languages is available here.  

This video clip shows some of the project's highlights and outlines some of the publication's main findings.

The outcomes of this year-long work were presented during meetings in Malta, Poland and the UK, and at an international conference on 16th November 2015 in Poland.
