We feel an urge to act since the actual job market has been shifting considerably: from “job for a lifetime” towards an entrepreneurship-based one.

Starting Up! is aimed to raise the self-esteem and self-awareness of youth with fewer opportunities. It will enable them to be active citizens, to support cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue. Moreover, participating in Starting up! will raise awareness about the European citizenship of participants. In working together they will come to the conclusion that they belong not only to their own country but also to the community of the European Union.
