Fostering entrepreneurship education in Romania [Blog Post]06 May 2016
by Emilian Pavel, MEP - Romania
It was a real pleasure to take part in the JA Back to School campaign. I joined a Junior Achievement entrepreneurship class in Bucharest, Romania, and I had the chance to chat to 10th grade high-school students about their views on entrepreneurship and hear about some of the business plans they had worked on. I truly believe that European young people need an entrepreneurial mindset, as well as world-class entrepreneurial ambitions. In order to enable that, Europe's educational systems need to be updated, and by working with organisations like Junior Achievement, national governments can transform their entrepreneurial education in a much more efficient way. Entrepreneurial education also needs to start early from the primary school and I'd like to encourage more and more initiatives in this respect!
