Programme & Handbook

The European project DOIT suggests how Europe can step up and make early-stage entrepreneurship education for young people more practice-based and effective. The suggested approach is empowering 6 to 16 years old children and youth to co-create solutions for social and environmental issues together with facilitators. The DOIT learning programme spans and integrates three facets:

  • Social Innovation: we see young people are engaged citizens, who can tackle societal issues and develop innovative solutions.
  • Entrepreneurial Education: The DOIT toolbox materials support the development of entrepreneurial mindsets and skills, as well as social businesses through direct learning experiences. 
  • Makerspace and Digital Fabrication Tools: DOIT builds upon open workshops with digital tools and maker education as a core.

The seven elements of a DOIT innovation process.

DOIT activities and material build upon these facets, which result in a (social) innovation process consisting of seven elements. Learn more about the programme in the handbook, take a look at the material in the innovation toolbox or use one of the workshop descriptions for your own purpose.
