(EN) An entrepreneurial attitude is essential for adapting to the fast social and economic developments of our time. SEE A Game is game based activities where using a set of board games, entrepreneurial processes are simulated and entrepreneurial attitudes are stimulated.
Through „learning by doing” to acquire a new non-formal working method which in future Project participants (game masters) could use in their own countries.
In the European Union, 7.5 million people in the 15-24 age group are neither in employment nor in education or training. This means that one in five young people on the labour market cannot find a job. The youth unemployment rate (at over 20%) is twice as high as for the whole working population and nearly three times as high as the rate for the adult active population. In some countries such as Greece and Spain, rates are as high as 60%. Within the same countries situations may differ widely between regions. Moreover, certain groups of the young population (including women, young people with disabilities, youth with migrant background) are particularly exposed to the risks of unemployment, long-term unemployment, early school leaving or inactivity. (Communication from the commision to the European parliament, the council, the European economic and social comittee of the reģions / Youth Opportunities Initiative, Brussels)”
The focus on entrepreneurial attitudes instead of on an entrepreneurial knowledge base is the major innovation of SEE A Game. Knowledge and information are not sufficient to succeed in taking charge of one’s own professional, social and personal life. What is „SEE A Game”? SEE A Game is game-based learning activities where students/players are pushed to develop an entrepreneurial attitude and competencies. Using a set of board games, entrepreneurial processes are simulated and entrepreneurial attitudes are stimulated. In particular SEE A Game focuses on the following ones:
– Assessment/Factor analysis
– Taking initiative
– Out-of-the-box thinking
– Organisational competence (information, searching, planning)
– Decision making
– Problem solving
– Social competencies and empathy

It takes about 50 minutes to Höör from the airport. Trains all the way to Höör leave every 26 minutes past every hour from the airport, which means you will be in Höör about 50 minutes later.
