Through project workshops we gained new knowledge about social entrepreneurship that is now included in the school curriculum. Implementing this project was an interesting challenge for teachers and students. Besides new information and knowledge, we were introduced with different online tools and learning methodology. SCoopConSS project was a great opportunity for students in vocational schools to learn about organization of social cooperatives and importance of sustainable development and corporate social responsibility. The added value of the project is that students will be able to apply and use in practice what they have learned during workshops.
Students from Donji Miholjac developed a cooperative that will address the biggest problems in their local community: unemployment, social exclusion, unused nature potential and resources, and lack of cultural and social content. School cooperative Drava created a two-phase project which will renew their local community. Phase one consists of renovation of city gardens, cultivation of different agricultural plants, production and sales of homemade products. The second phase consist of restoration of river Drava coastline and opening a camp with different cultural content. This will create new job opportunities, activate the community and increase its visibility in the region.
