Learning entrepreneurship by solving real problems

Kiran Sethi, founder of Design for Change and Ashoka Fellow, is one of the prominent speakers of the IMPULSA Forum section devoted to entrepreneurship education. Caroline Jenner, will share with IMPULSA participants the best initiatives in this area as CEO of Junior Achievement Enterprise Europe, and David Rosendo, high school teacher, will present the draft of the FPdGi Entrepreneurial Education Project.

Convinced that the best way to learn is to seek solutions to real problems, Kiran Sethi founded in 2009 Design for Change, the first international movement for change led by children, which aims to put their early creativity to use in resolving global challenges. In 2011, Design for Change (which is present in more than 30 countries including Spain) received the prestigious INDEX (Design to Improve Life) award in Denmark. Prior to this, Kiran Sethi set up the Riverside School in Ahmedabad (India), where children are taught the most important lesson in life: ‘I can’. The students tackle local problems, lead other young people and even educate their own parents. In 2008 she was named an Ashoka Fellow social entrepreneur for setting up aProCh, an initiative that aims to make cities friendlier places for children. 

Caroline Jenner is the CEO of Junior Achievement-Young Enterprise Europe, and actively involved in the European Commission’s entrepreneurship education policies, she has led expert groups such as New Skills for New Jobs. In 2004, she was appointed European Vice-President of Junior Achievement Worldwide. This initiative involves businesses and professionals who collaborate to share their experience with children and young people. Ms Jenner has also participated in the creation of global initiatives such as the Report on Entrepreneurship Education for the World Economic Forum 2010.

Finally, David Rosendo is a secondary school teacher and head of the Department of Entrepreneurial Initiative of the Government of Andalusia. He will present the PGiF’s Entrepreneurial Education Project, which consists of drafting an educational proposal that involves teaching entrepreneurial initiative from primary school until sixth-form level and vocational training in Spain.
