The Empowering Green Entrepreneurship project aims to promote and encourage green practices among the new generations of entrepreneurs. The project targets startups, small and medium enterprises, and new and aspiring entrepreneurs, aiming to empower them with green and digital skills and to promote and develop an environmentally friendly mindset among them.
Until the end of 2023, Fundatia Danis, together with the five partners from Spain, Italy, Greece, and Cyprus will focus on achieving the following results:
- to develop a green entrepreneurship guide on green skills and sustainability practices based on the EU Green Deal policies. The guide will include theory on the topics of sustainable development, circular economy, sustainable transport, pollution elimination, waste management, including an innovative business plan with a „green” dimension, but also examples and practical advice for entrepreneurs;
- to create a green entrepreneurship e-course with audiovisual support based on inspirational videos, interviews, and best practices;
- to build a free online educational platform containing the educational resources developed by the partners;
- to motivate and train on green practices and green knowledge, at least 600 new and aspiring entrepreneurs, SMEs, and startups from the five countries.
All educational materials developed will be available online. They will have a „green” dimension to encourage the entrepreneurs to use energy-efficient resources and methods, including digital skills that help them achieve the goal of climate neutrality. The new knowledge will allow European entrepreneurs to include „green” practices in their business, reducing the environmental impact and opening up new potential markets.
The EGE- Empowering Green Entrepreneurship project is implemented under Erasmus + programme by six partner organizations from Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Romania: Cambra de Comerc, Industria i Navegació de Girona (Spain), Izertis (Spain), Eduforma (Italy), Rezos Brands (Greece), Rivensco Consulting (Cyprus) and Fundatia Danis (Romania).
The project is co-funded by the European Commission, through the Erasmus +project and the Spanish National Erasmus+Agency – Sepie.
