ALDA is now implementing in the city of Arzignanothe seminar “NEW”, first phase of the one-year project “New Entrepreneurs Ways”. The topic of the project, developedin the framework of the Youth in Action Programme and led by the Municipality of Arzignano, is youth entrepreneurship.
The second step of “New Entrepreneurs Ways” will consist of six National Youth Initiatives (one for each partner country), that will make young people be directly and actively involved in activities managed by themselves for developing their initiatives, entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.
The third phase of the project will consist of a trans-national Youth Exchange in Pelhrimov, Czech Republic: through “discovery visits”, workshops, debates and role playing activities it will provide the participants with a concrete experience about the situation of work, employment and entrepreneurship in Europe. At the end of the project, a publication will be produced to promote its tangible results and outcomes.
The seminar, organized by ALDA and Cooperativa Studio Progetto, is seeing the participation of young people from Czech Republic, France, Greece,Italy and Malta. The participants are being involved in debating about entrepreneurship and youth employment with a creative and international approach.
The active collaboration of the local economic fabric has allowed the development of some strongly formative activities, such as the round table “NEW entrepreneurship today: utopia or reality?”, in which various local entrepreneurs and experts on company start-up were involved: Andrew Arduini from Editrice Millennium, Alessandro Fracasso from Italian Power Company, FilippoStorti from Manostorti, PatriziaBernardini from Centro di Produttività Veneto, Massimo Avantaggiato from UNISCO and professor Roberto Ricciuti from the University of Verona. The round table was organized by Marco Boaria from ALDA and Andrea Rilievo and Lara Lupo from Cooperativa Studio Progetto, and was centered around the meaning of being an entrepreneur today and the role of politics in supporting new entrepreneurship.
