"Rule the World and Become an Entrepreneur vol.3" youth exchange in Croatia

Δεκέμβριος 27, 2018

In October and November, K.A.NE. has sent 10 young people in Vinkovci, Croatia, to take part in the project “Rule the World and Become an Entrepreneur vol.3”. The project was hosted by Udruga KOR and aimed to allow young people from 6 different countries (Croatia, Greece, Italy, Spain, FYROM and Portugal) to explore social entrepreneurship and responsible marketing topics and offering them valuable tools and working methods applicable in a daily life and professional development.

The project had three activities: the advanced planning visit and two youth exchanges.

The first youth exchange took place between the 21st and the 29th of October and was about social entrepreneurship and the process of creating and finding the best model, idea and a product. Participants were encouraged to build a prototype and engage themselves in creating a solution to an existing issue in the local community.

The second youth exchange that took place between the 18th and the 26th of November, was about responsible «feel good» marketing. In this activity, the participants have built a marketing campaign to promote what was created in the first activity. Participants have been challenged and empowered to explore new tools and different concepts, and ideas.

In each youth exchange, there were 5 participants and a group leader. It was essential to have a connection between the groups, so two of the Greek participants, that were interested in both aspects of the project, have participated in both youth exchanges.

After returning back to Greece, the participants shared their experience about their participation. You can read their impressions here and you can see how did they do it in the following videos:

K.A.NE. gave me the chance to participate in “Rule the world and become an entrepreneur” youth exchange as the team leader. This came to be one of the best experiences of my life as I learnt so many things about social entrepreneurship while bonding with the most beautiful people from around Europe. I hope that many young people from Greece will get the same chance like me and enlighten our continent by sharing their ideas.”
