17 – 25 October, 2015
Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland

The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., participated as a partner in the Your social footprint through entrepreneurship in youth work project. The training of youth workers took place from 17 – 25 October in Tomaszow Lubelskie, Poland. In total, we gathered 24 participants from Poland, Macedonia, Croatia, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, France and Bulgaria.

The vast majority of the workshops focused on social entrepreneurship, which has been strongly promoted by the EU in recent years. Among other things, we learned about how social entrepreneurship is regulated in different EU countries, so we can confirm that it is relatively well regulated in Slovenia, while in many other countries it is still developing.

During the training, we visited some good practice examples and got to know social entrepreneurship in Poland better.Among other things, we were given the task to develop our own business idea that could be implemented in the framework of a social enterprise.
