Practical Entrepreneurship Education is an essential pathway to transforming schools into exciting hubs of inspiration that will provide students with the relevant learning and adaptable skills for the jobs of the future, as well as with the mindset and motivation to become confident and successful entrepreneurs and job creators. This participatory session offers a platform for educators, youth leaders, practitioners, policy makers and other experts to exchange their various perspectives on how this approach contributes to achieving decent employment/work for all by 2030 (SDG 8). Together with other participants you will tackle current challenges in scaling up this model and explore ways in which governments can support education and development practitioners. You will also be able to discuss with the Honduran Ministry of Education their experience in introducing the School-Business Model in 200 schools in 2017.
