This project has been conceived as a youth-led transnational project that will develop, test and implement innovative practices in a newly-emerged area in the field of entrepreneurship. With an ever-changing world, rising unemployment and the growing influence of social media and technology, understanding the ways in which digital technology can be harnessed for entrepreneurial pursuits is vital in both preparing young people for the future of work and giving them a toolkit to survive outside the traditional labour market. To that end, this project responds to a number of sectoral and horizontal priorities, while it has been developed with the key aim of delivering the new Youth Strategy and Erasmus+ overall objectives.
EDEEY offers an innovative, accredited training course to prepare those without access to infinite capital on how to utilise digital entrepreneurship as a way of poverty alleviation, whilst also increasing the creation of jobs for their peers. It will target young people between the ages of 16-25 with a particular focus on young people from low-income households, females and those from marginalized backgrounds such as Roma.
During its 24-month lifetime, EDEEY will directly and indirectly positively impact:
young people and over 80 professionals working vulnerable youth trained
