October 2017 – August 2021

Focus Empowering the young with social innovation skills. 

NEMESIS developed a new educational approach that strengthens the capacity, skills and entrepreneurial mindsets of children from all backgrounds. This enables students to deal with the real challenges of the 21st century and gives them the possibility to become social change makers in a world where inequality, poverty and social exclusion still occur. The project builds on a combination of innovative pedagogy and contemporary educational practices.

The NEMESIS project uses a new approach, in which students are involved in a collective learning model that is based on partnerships between education, social innovators and community. Students, teachers and social innovators are involved in co-creation labs and these labs will develop innovative education resources which schools can use to improve the social innovation skills of students. These resources, such as guides for teachers, training materials and student projects are placed on an Open Learning Platform for Social Innovation and are freely accessible for everyone.

NEMESIS is being rolled out at schools in Greece, Spain, Great Britain, France, Portugal and the Netherlands.
