The University of Pecs invites you to join the Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program from 1-29 July in Pecs, Hungary.
Do you want to make a real change in people’s lives by helping those who are not supported by anyone? Do you want to be part of a team that brings students together from various disciplines and nationalities? Do you want to create new initiatives that serve as solutions to complex socioeconomic problems? The Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program is for you!
This program is designed to train and mentor participants from diverse disciplines to get involved in improving not only their own but also their peers’ entrepreneurial mindsets while making a real change in the Pecs region. Participants will learn and act as entrepreneurship consultants to assist groups and individuals in the Pecs region to expand their opportunity spaces.
There are some socio-economic-environmental problems that remain unresolved because neither the market nor the government, be it local or national, are willing to or capable of solving them even though their measures would make a huge difference in the life of many. This is when social entrepreneurs step up and generate implementable ideas that have the potential to change the life of those who are affected by the problem. These self-driven, innovative, caring, and open-minded individuals create “something out of thin air” while closely interacting with those affected by the problem and travelling through the fantastic journey of MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
At the Simonyi Summer Social Entrepreneurship Program, you can take part in this journey with like-minded students from many nations with different mindsets and problems. You can learn the tools necessary to plan, implement and analyze the problems and solutions in a real-life setting by working on real-life problems in the South Transdanubian Region of Hungary. You will be exposed to diverse socio-cultural impulses in the heart of Europe and will have the opportunity to travel to neighbouring countries of Hungary in just a couple of hours reach.
If you want to spend a fun yet professionally rewarding summer month with international students in Central Europe, and have valuable and unique work experience in your CV, don’t hesitate to register.
