“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”- Benjamin Fanklin 1706-1790
We are excited to share with you all, our dedicated HES supporters, that the first iteration of our foundation level online course ‘Principles of Harmonious Entrepreneurship’. We will officially launch it this week at the 15th Enterprise Educators UK International Entrepreneurship Educators Conference at Aston University
Part-funded by Enterprise Educators UK’s Richard Beresford Bursary, and the UWTSD Harmony Institute it is supported by UWTSD’s International Institute for Creative Entrepreneurial Development (IICED), is aimed at educators and students, but open to all.
Participants will be exposed to the key principles of ‘Harmonious Entrepreneurship’ as a precursor to supporting or launching a Harmonious Venture. Those who are inspired by the concepts are invited to contact the Harmonious Entrepreneurship Society (HES) for more information, as we plan to build in more proactive support for harmonious venture development.
Designed to be completed at the participant’s own pace, there are 10 sessions of content. Themes include Entrepreneurship & Enterprise, Harmony, Systems Thinking, the EntreComp competences, Integrating the SDGs, Ethics, and Creativity. There is a mix of short videos, case studies, extended reading and further signposting to resources. Participants are invited to leave any comments, feedback and recommendations for further detail in the ‘Leave a Reply’ space of each page.
Our next goal is to launch a student competition that will combine training workshops with an opportunity to identify and launch an innovative, commercial venture that will address, holistically, the interconnected elements in the sustainability challenge.
