European Commission Publication - Young People and Entrepreneurship

European Commission Publication - Young People and Entrepreneurship | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

For the sake of its own citizens, as well as if it wants to stay competitive, Europe needs to invest in people, in their skills, in their ability to adapt and in their ability to innovate. The challenges of modern society can be met only when its members develop a sense of what it is to be an active, critical and responsible citizen of Europe, and when they are equipped to make the best choices for themselves in a constantly changing world.

 

To achieve this, there is a need to encourage young people, to instil a spirit of entrepreneurship from early on in life — initiative, confidence, calculated risk-taking, creativity, organisation, tenacity — and to help them in the transition from school to adulthood. This booklet demonstrates some of the wide range of pioneering projects in Youth in Action programme that nurture the development of such entrepreneurial skills.

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

FEAP organised the 2nd edition of 'Aquaculture in Motion',  Wednesday 6th of November in Le Méridien Hotel in Brussels. This year the event focussed on the ‘Strategic Guidelines for the Sustainable Development of European Aquaculture’ that were published by the European Commission in April 2013. These Guidelines aim to assist the EU Member States to define national targets while taking account of their circumstances, institutional arrangements and relative positions in terms of aquaculture activities. While the aims to promote aquaculture are intended to be achieved through a voluntary open process of coordination, it is also proposed, where appropriate, that common objectives be identified, alongside measurable indicators for progress.


In providing a focus on the need for quantified targets and relevant indicators, Aquaculture in Motion intends to stimulate the identification of Best Practice for the key performance indicators that need to be agreed as measures of progress and development. Moving European aquaculture forward with successful sustainable strategies was the target of this year’s Aquaculture in Motion.
