28 - 29 March 2019, Lund
Since 2012, The Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship arranges the European Entrepreneurship Education Workshop annually.
The eight edition of the workshop was held 28-29 March, 2019 at the Lund University School of Economics and Management.
As educators in the field of entrepreneurship, we have a significant opportunity to influence our students’ perspectives on what entrepreneurship could be and which roles it can fill in society. Our students can become change makers who contribute to the betterment of society and to the creation of a more sustainable society. Entrepreneurship can be a tool and an approach for this.
The world is facing many challenges; some are documented in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations.
Today, those goals are guiding a lot of work done in public and private organisations. They are also, in different ways, guiding our educational system.
During EEEW 2019 we want to discuss which role the Sustainable Development Goals can play in relation to entrepreneurship education. Should they be considered? Which roles do we, as educators, take on? Is it our responsibility to help our students to take a broader view and engage in the big challenges? Should this be an approach in all entrepreneurship courses and programmes or only in those having a specific focus on social entrepreneurship and innovation?
