The Social Entrepreneurship Education Program (SEE Program) is a multilateral Europeal Project sponsored by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme.
The SEE Programme moves from the understanding of the potential high impact that Social Entrepreneurship can have for the current hard times that all Europe is experiencing. Social Entrepreneurship means at the same time tackling social issues such as poverty, unemployment, ageing, education, health, etc., with organizations that strive to maximize their social impact rather than their revenues. This kind of organizations has the potential to be a significat part of the answer to the current economic crisis.
The main goal of the SEE Programme is developing an education program and high quality education materials for prospective and already active social entrepreneurs. To achieve this, a bottom-up approach will be taken, moving from the analysis of social enterprises, interviews to entrepreneurs, and currently existing programs.
The SEE Programme partnership brings together social enterprises, NGOs, universities and start-up centers/incubators from all over Europe.
