A change in attitude towards education is needed
Danuta Jazłowiecka, MEP, EE-HUB.EU Ambassador
When I ask school-aged young people what they would like to do in the future, only a small percentage have clear ideas about their professional careers. This shows that teenagers are very often not able nor prepared to make decisions when it comes to choosing a university or even their studies. Therefore teaching them to be active, entrepreneurial, responsible, flexible and ready to adapt to changing social and economic conditions should be one of the main tasks faced by European schools in this century.
Is an entrepreneurial mindset something you can teach and learn?
Dr. Friederike Sözen, Senior Advisor, Department of Educational Policy for the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKÖ)
Yes, we are convinced that you can teach entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial mindset. Entrepreneurship is all about attitudes, skills and competences.
