The beginning of this great experience was very exciting for me but at the same time I was very nervous, since it was the first time I would leave my home. The idea I had about this was that I would go to a very labor-intensive training, a sort of competition between organizations to see who was the best at the end of the training, an idea that was very wrong, because after the nerves I had calmed down I realized that we were all there to learn and reinforce our knowledge, to interact and to get to know about the cultures of the participating countries. We were there to learn through non-formal education in a very fun way, to learn by having fun.
Among the topics that were discussed, I was very struck by one in particular, it was difficult for me to understand the topic of finding ones weaknesses and strengths and also finding others who also had the same strengths and weaknesses in order to work as a team with them to develop proposals for social interests and group motivation. What I take from this youth meeting is a clearer and more concise idea of the business model CANVAS, how to implement it in my idea of entrepreneurship and community ventures and also how to apply storytelling if I am in need of financial support.
This way of non-formal education (in youth meetings) has changed the way I see and shape the idea of entrepreneurship.
