There are many different ways to define entrepreneurship. It is the practice that sees opportunities that no other person can see. It is all about taking those opportunities and turn them into functional businesses. Entrepreneurship is all about taking risks.
Unfortunately, nowadays, most young people are either not given the opportunity to become part of the entrepreneurial world or are not willing to take the risks they should, so that they can succeed in the world of business.
In rural areas, it is especially difficult for young people to learn about entrepreneurship. Rural areas are not able to give them a lot of opportunities and it is important for them to be able to have an option in order for them to learn what they like and what they want to do in life.
The European Union is focusing on helping young people all around Europe, to manage and become part of the entrepreneurial world. As young people in rural areas have limited opportunities for their social and professional development, the knowledge, skills, and competencies related to entrepreneurship will be improved, employment and innovation opportunities will be increased, and rural areas will be developed.
The project ” EYE in RURAL- The enhancement of Youth Entrepreneurship in Rural ” aims to enhance skills and competencies of youth on entrepreneurship in rural areas besides to provide the online training module and pilot training for youth by promoting them entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education.
The project has a supplementary effect by means of the cooperation with differently structured organizations to supply different perspective in youth work for youth workers, consultant, and trainers. It is expected that young people will socialize, develop their entrepreneurship, increase their job opportunities in rural areas, develop their self-esteem and reveal new ideas and professional skills.
