YOUR WORLD, YOUR BUSINESS: Inspiring young entrepreneurs to build a better tomorrow

YOUR WORLD, YOUR BUSINESS is a major new European initiative to bring social and environmental issues into school level entrepreneurship education. A collaborative partnership between the European Commission and Junior Achievement-Young Enterprise, it aims to inspire students aged 16-19 to become the kind of entrepreneurs our society increasing needs: creative, dynamic, and passionate about society and the environment.

By reaching out to students and teachers across Europe on the topic of responsible entrepreneurship, it pursues European policy goals in the fields of corporate social responsibility and entrepreneurship education. It includes two videos and a teacher’s guide outlining further activities for the classroom and beyond. These materials will be available in 24 different language versions and distributed to thousands of schools throughout Europe.

Your World, Your Business also aims to go beyond the confines of the classroom: students participating in the initiative will be encouraged to submit their ideas to the JA-YE Europe and HP ‘Responsible Business Competition,’ which gives the support young entrepreneurs need to jump start their businesses.
