The Borderstep project StartGreen@School was selected by a jury of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as the German finalist of the European Business Promotion Award. The winners of the German preliminary decision have been invited to Helsinki for the European award ceremony: “The two selected projects are involved in important socio-political areas. They recognise the current challenges and promote sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship. I wish them every success for the award ceremony in Helsinki in November,” said the Federal Government Commissioner for SMEs, Christian Hirte.S
StartGreen@School promotes sustainable start-up culture in schools. “With the selection of StartGreen@School, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy shows that the promotion of sustainable management is becoming increasingly important.
