The EU-China seminar on youth entrepreneurship, organised by the European Commission and the All China Youth Federation, took place on 25-27 November in Brussels.
The EU-China seminar's objective was to provide a platform for a constructive exchange of experiences and good practice examples on youth entrepreneurship in the EU and in China with a strong focus on creativity, innovation, development of life skills and attitudes aiming at stimulating the sense of initiative of young people.
The seminar brought together about 60 participants from the EU and China, who discussed topics such as individual skills and competences and framework conditions for entrepreneurship, the development of social networks and the value added of EU-China cooperation. In addition, the participants visited a Youth in Action project between Belgian and Chinese organisations and listened to a lecture from an academia on Social entrepreneurship.
The seminar was organised to continue the EU-China youth policy dialogue as a follow-up activity to the EU-China Year of Youth and the EU-China High Level People-to-People Dialogue.
