EU-China seminar on youth entrepreneurship, 25-27 November 2013, Brussels
This report summarises the key conclusions, proceedings and evaluation of the EU-China Expert Seminar on Youth Entrepreneurship which took place in Brussels between 25 and 27 November 2013. The event was organised in collaboration with the European Commission and the All-China Youth Federation and has been identified as Side event to the EU-China Summit. The similarities which exist within youth entrepreneurship provide a real opportunity for mutual support, learning and development for both China and the EU. The entrepreneurial journey our young people are taking offers opportunities for... better employment, creating business ventures and increasing economic development. However, entrepreneurship in our youth requires nurturing through all forms of education, supporting networking opportunities and providing transparent methods to set up and close business ventures. At the social level this means accepting failure as a pedagogical method of learning and developing our young people to accept this as part of their and our entrepreneurial development. It also means we should combine citizenship & entrepreneurship for creating sustainable social services through local entrepreneurship. Through EU-China co-corporation with our SME’s, Youth Groups, Individual Entrepreneurs & Investment Institutions, a dialogue could be developed which continues to inform, support and inspire young people to engage with entrepreneurship.
