2019-2-IT03-KA105-016670 “Cultural Laboratories of Enterprie (CLOE)” Project II Under the coordination of Convivio Del Pensiero Critico (Italy), Tokat Economic Development and Vocational Training Association (Turkey) Olemisen Balanssie RY (Finland) and eSquare Ev (Germany) ) in partnership. It is supported by the Erasmus+ program.
Explaining the purpose of the project, Istinye University Lecturer Özlem Nur Besler said, “As educators and entrepreneurs, we participated in our project, which we realized in cooperation with the Italian National Agency, in the Lanciano region of Italy, where we aimed to support the perspectives of young people towards entrepreneurship. I think that young people need more guidance and encouragement by us to bring their ideas to life. I believe that as young people gain knowledge, their self-confidence will increase proportionally. Within the scope of our project, we conducted many studies with our other stakeholders on the perspectives of all cultures towards entrepreneurship, different cultural entrepreneurship practices and the way they implement their ideas. In the light of the information gained through the CLOE project, we aim to encourage our young people to have more international knowledge about entrepreneurship and then to put their ideas into practice. We want to differentiate and use non-formal teaching methods and practices on entrepreneurship for our target audience, young people, and to provide modernization and internationalization to entrepreneurial organizations. Finally, we want to introduce our young people to the issues of sustainability and social entrepreneurship, to see the viability of ideas and to see them put these ideas into practice.” said.
In this context, our international project, carried out in partnership with Italy, Turkey, Germany and Finland in Fara San Martino, Italy, continues with 8 youth workers of Tokat Economic Development and Vocational Training Association and a total of 18 participants.
Mehmet Özer, Secretary of Tokat Economic Development and Vocational Education Association, a businessman and currently active with three companies and taking part in the executive board of TOBB Young Entrepreneurs, said, “I have joined the CLOE project with the participants from different countries on Entrepreneurship with my experience in practice in our own culture. I intended to convey it from beginning to end. I tried to underline the points I have reached by taking action from the idea stage, which is the first step in the entrepreneurship process. I think we are useful as a guide to both the participants in the project and the entrepreneur candidates in our country.”
Tokat Gaziosmanpaşa University Lecturer Ayhan Diril said, “To support the project in multiple ways, I shared my own books of poems and stories in English with the participants and pointed out that cultural and artistic interaction is a universal language. We created a joyful atmosphere with the participants with the pieces I played with the “ney”, the indispensable instrument of Mevlevi Music, that I brought with me.” said.
Bodrum Anatolian High School Principal Berrin İpek said, “I am happy to have an active role with the participants of the International CLOE Project. I believe that the positive and negative aspects of management practices and entrepreneurship, the problems and solutions that may be encountered in the sector will guide the young people in the project, and I think that the project will raise awareness especially in the development of the competence and skill levels of the youth in employment.’ He said.
Müslim Kaçmaz, President of Tokat Economic Development and Vocational Development Association, said, “I am very pleased that our youth workers are participating in an international project. Here we introduce our culture. We met and mingled with people from different countries. I am very pleased with the active participation of our participants and their successful presentations.”
