EU4Youth: Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED) for Green Growth

A study visit for young people in Georgia and Armenia was held among the innovation knowledge hubs created with the support of the European Union


12 young people from three municipalities of Georgia took part in the EU-supported study visit “Discover Social Entrepreneurship in Armenia”. During the three-day visit, participants from Gori, Ninotsminda and Akhmeta municipalities visited the innovation knowledge hubs established in the Shirak, Tavush and Lori regions under the “EU4Youth: Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED)” project.

As part of the tour, active young people from Innovation Knowledge Hubs from Georgia met with young Armenian entrepreneurs and discussed future joint activities. Among the Armenian enterprises were those who won the EU-supported Caucasus Social Innovation Grant in 2021.

At the end of the study visit, the tour participants attended the Agricultural Pumpkin Festival in Hovk Province. The festival was organized in the Green Training Centre, established on the basis of the Green Lane NGO, a project partner in Armenia, and the participants had the opportunity to taste local products and get acquainted with the invited small enterprises throughout Armenia.

The EU-funded regional project “EU4Youth: Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED) for Green Growth” is implemented by CENN in partnership with KRDF in Georgia and Green Lane NGO in Armenia. The project empowers disadvantaged youth in Georgia and Armenia to successfully transition from education to work through developing their Social Entrepreneurship and Green Innovation skills.
