18th-25th of Septeber 2022
Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain
Erasmus youth exchange program, ‘Starting up’ had an aim to empower social entrepreneurship to young individuals with fewer opportunities. The program took place in Pontevedra, Spain between the 18th to 25th of September 2022. Young people from Estonia, Italy, Spain, Greece and Cyprus collaborate together and combine their knowledge to learn about enterprises with social impact in order to inspire and motivate high school students. Team workshops included entrepreneurial learning through video creation, visiting pont up stores, getting involved directly with local citizens, theory classes and implementing social issues of our countries.
In addition, through this project, we had the opportunity to have culture nights which were really fun and informative at the same time. Getting to know habits, cultures and the routines of different countries is really exciting. Generally, an experience we would have lived another 100 times if we had the chance.
Fun, laughs, singing and learning accompanied us throughout the whole week!!!
