“Towards Collaborative Practice” Forum: A cross-sector event exploring the potential of youth work and Erasmus+ to foster social entrepreneurship among young people.

The “Towards Collaborative Practice” (TCP) Community has been growing and inspiring the field of social entrepreneurship and innovation since the first conference burst out of Malmö, Sweden in 2015. The second edition of the TCP Forum, focusing on social innovation and entrepreneurship, took place in the beautiful city of Lecce Italy in 2016. The third chapter followed in Liverpool United Kingdom, at the beginning of 2018, which sought to grow and collaborate further by sharing ideas across the Youth and Vocational Education sectors.

Now it’s your turn to join the community in the fourth TCP Forum to take place in Budapest, Hungary between 27 November and 1 December 2018. This edition’s focus will be environmental consciousness in social entrepreneurship. The whole event is influenced by its theme, environmental awareness - including site selection, menu compilation, coffee breaks and the materials we use. We believe it is important to show that there is always an opportunity to select an environmentally friendly option.
