TC”Gender equality and Entrepreneurship 4 All”-17-25 October 2022, Bansko, Bulgaria

Dates: 17-25 October 2022, Bansko

Place: Bansko, Bulgaria

About the project:

“Gender equality and Entrepreneurship 4 All” is a mobility of youth workers, KA1 Training Course, under Erasmus+ and will be implemented by Copernicus Berlin e.V. with the support of Alternativi International. The training course will take place in Bansko, Bulgaria, and it will involve 30 youth workers (20+), from 6 different countries (Germany, Bulgaria, Romania, Estonia, Turkey and Italy ).

This project is in line with the objectives of the Erasmus + program, by training 30 youth workers, members of youth organizations. The project intends to raise awareness regarding equal opportunities and will promote entrepreneurship education as a solution to the gender gap in the employment rate. In order to attain the EU objectives to reach equality in entrepreneurship, the number of female entrepreneurs needs to rise. Indeed, women make up 52% of the European population – but just 34.4% of self-employed workers are women and 14% of start-ups are headed by female entrepreneurs. Young women should start considering entrepreneurship as an option and also benefit by the growing attention that is given by the EU on this matter. The development of entrepreneurial mindsets is becoming policy-embedded across Europe and so the project wants to provide youth workers the necessary competences to overcome the gender gap in entrepreneurship. The project aims to:

– Raise awareness regarding equal opportunities in entrepreneurship regardless of gender;

– Devise tools to examine gender issues and offer guidance;

– Create a new approach to promoting entrepreneurship education as a solution to the gender gap;

– Provide critical knowledge to youth workers to become coach for women entrepreneurship.
