‘JA Back to School’ aims at bringing National Members of the Parliament (MPs) and Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) Back to School. The intent is to have policy-makers across Europe (re)connect with schools in their country and witness entrepreneurship education in action.
The following activities are organised in cooperation with national JA offices across Europe:
- Visits to a JA class in action in a primary or secondary school
- Participations as jury member in JA competitions.
- Participation in JA Innovation camps and JA Marketplace.
Europe’s competitiveness and youth employment continue to suffer and we see ever-deepening education budget cuts. We seem to have lost touch with the economic potential in our classrooms.
‘JA Back to School’ invites policy-makers at national and EU-level to help us increase the uptake of entrepreneurship education in Europe and make Europe more entrepreneurial!
