During June we spent almost 16 days working in the Seeds 2 Seminar for Social entrepreneurship.
During this time we met 18 people from 7 different countries who work for 12 local and global organizations. We learned, worked, discussed and laughed together for 24×7 and we have done these with a common goal in our minds to motivate young people to create social entrepreneurship.
During the Seeds2 Seminar we discussed the possibilities and challenges that are involved on bringing almost fifty youngsters together so they can learn and developed their capabilities to become social entrepreneurs. This will be possible by empowering young people from different communities around the world, with different tools and skills that will help them to change their context. One of the expected outcomes is that by helping these participants to become leaders in their own communities they will be able to motivate other people to do the same. But these seminar is only the beginning of a upcoming project that will last 18 months involving over 50 people from Turkey, Argentina, Finland, Peru, Spain, Mexico and Italy. To participate in Seeds 2 Seminar has been a great experience for everyone because it gave us the opportunity to share experiences from diverse contexts, with similarities and differences. Each of them had value as we where working with complex problems like poverty, vulnerability, corruption, etc. This seminar had a great vibe, because everyone was willing to work for a betterfuture in their own countries and it will give the opportunity to the participants to travel to the next venues and learn with games and non-formal education. This process of learning will be crucial as they will become social entrepreneurs and work in their own project with positive impact in their countries.
As Esperanza del Mañana is a partner from Mexico, we are very excited to be part of Seeds 2 as many of the people that will be participating from Mexico are very talented with a great disposition to learn. They will be sharing their own experiences of their communities most of them with ancient knowledge from nature and social interaction with their context. For the next year and a half the experience of this seminar will be very valuable for every participant and I’m almost sure that the results of the overall project will have a positive impact on every local context, because it will have the support of a great global network.
