SETEA – O projektu/About the project

SETEA (Sport Education Triggering Entrepreneurial Action) je Erasmus+ projekt mobilnosti za osobe koje rade s mladima u sklopu ključne aktivnosti 1 sa ciljem da se onima koji rade s mladima i potencijalnim sportskim poduzetnicima omogući primjena sportskih metoda i praksi s ciljem širenja poduzetničkog duha i vještina među mladima s manje mogućnosti u partnerskim zemljama.

Trajanje projekta: od 1. siječnja 2018. do 28. veljače 2019.

Rijeka Sport’s Association will develop two Training Courses: “Sport is the Way!” (Sassari,Italy) and “Give Entrepreneurship a Run!” (Rijeka; Croatia) in the frame of the project “Sport Education Triggering Entrepreneurial Action” (SETEA). The project will involve 40 youth workers and leaders from partner organization. SETEA aims at allowing youth operators (youth workers and leaders) and potential Sport entrepreneurs to employ Sport methods and practices to spread entrepreneurial mindset and skills among disadvantaged youngsters in partner countries. Europe is presently facing a massive employment crisis, especially for young people. Many youngsters in all partner countries suffer unemployment and exclusion from education and personal development opportunities. According to statistical findings (EUROSTAT), youth unemployment is a particularly concerning phenomenon in Italy (35,5%), Croatia (31%) and Bulgaria (16,6% As of April 2017). Statistical information and observation showed us that a need of communication between different geographical regions of Europe is required for sustainable development of youth employment through sport. Youth operators play an important role in supporting young people and they should, in our eyes, also play a vital role in supporting young people’s reflection on their personal development. Youth entrepreneurship in today’s Europe is a key issue for a greater economic development and for a deeper crises solution. Sport integrates key assets of an entrepreneurial mindset (proactiveness, risk-taking, team-work, flexibility, creativity) offering significant prospects as a tool of entrepreneurial development tailored to the needs and preferences of young people. SETEA GENERAL AIM is: To provide participants with knowledge, skills and attitudes to employ Sport to spread entrepreneurial attitudes and skills among disadvantaged youth; To promote cooperation among countries belonging to different European regions affected by similar problems of youth unemployment and exclusion; To develop a sustainable network among organizations in the youth field and sport; To explore the meaning, relevance and potential of youth entrepreneurship d for increasing youth employability; To reflect and exchange opinions/researches about the youth unemployment and entrepreneurship in different European countries in the field of sport; To explore Sport as an area of concrete entrepreneurial engagement for young people; To share examples of good practices combating youth unemployment in sport. We believe that SETEA will also significantly contribute to reach the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy for 2010-18, which are to provide more and equal opportunities for young people in education and in the job market and to encourage young people to actively participate in society.
