Short description:

In the ongoing debate about new forms of economic activities, sustainability driven entrepreneurs are more and more seen as agents of change towards a post-growth society. While focusing on the creation of social and ecological values sustainability driven entrepreneurship reflects a radical change in our understanding of the economic purpose as well as our current modes of production and consumption. Additionally, this new approach confronts entrepreneurial education at our universities with new demands and related re-structuring of classical pedagogical concepts and curricula.
Against this background, the 2 hour workshop will address two major questions:

  • Which key competencies does sustainable driven entrepreneurship need?
  • How and in which form could this key competencies be taught in higher education?
