After finishing high school or college, a great number of our students decide to continue their career by starting their own business. Participation in this project helped them to understand the concept of social entrepreneurship and develop expectations about starting a career in a social enterprise. Since there is no school subject similar to the topic of SCoopCOnSS project, this was a great opportunity to teach students about social, economic and ecological aspects of entrepreneurship and how to develop a sustainable and responsible enterprise. As teachers, we wanted our students to become competent, develop awareness about the needs in their local community and how to actively engage in developing solutions.
