Transnational Training II within “Elist – European Learning Innovation for Sustainable Training” context is a 5 days Capacity Building/Mentoring Course, where 70 participants, from 7 countries, will have the opportunity to improve their entrepreneurial attitudes/behaviors, knowledge, skills and build innovation capabilities in order to have a positive impact on local development in a sustainable way, considering the environment, the economy and the social context of their communities.
This training is asset-based and focuses on the sustainability and the development of a dynamic and growth generating entrepreneurial ecosystem in the agricultural sector, in which multiple stakeholders play a role in facilitating entrepreneurship at international, national, regional and local levels.
Youth Trainers acting as Mentors and young entrepreneurs acting as Mentees, are welcome to participate as they can learn from each other and create mutually beneficial and self-sustaining relationships generating jobs, and fostering innovation and poverty reduction through the empowerment of marginalized members of the agricultural community.
The sessions will be mixed, formal, non-formal and practical. Special emphasis will be placed on experiential and peer-learning.
The primary aim of this training is:
- to provide an overview for a systemic approach to capacity building in entrepreneurship which will facilitate mentors to inspire and enable individuals to start and to grow entrepreneurial ventures in the agricultural sector, and
