The StartGreen@School project promotes a sustainable entrepreneurial culture in schools. The aim is for students to learn more about business start-ups in the field of sustainability and for this to inspire them to establish their own student companies.
Part of the project involves training teachers and education professionals on the subject of sustainable entrepreneurship. In addition to this, schools are networked with green start-ups and sustainable companies.
StartGreen@School as a motivator for the creation of businesses
StartGreen@School gets students excited about setting up sustainable start-ups. Informative materials and tools demonstrate how sustainable start-up ideas can be developed and implemented and how the work of a student company can be organized in a sustainable manner. The latest methods for business model development, such as the Sustainable Business Canvas, are available for this purpose. StartGreen@School offers entrepreneur camps and workshops for schools.
