The CASYE Policy Recommendations
The CASYE partners developed a set of policy recommendations
for policymakers and educators addressing the importance of further promoting youth social entrepreneurship in the creative sector.
This document was created after the implementation of a background research on the topic, of a collection of good practices and a mentoring programme framework for educators.
The policy recommendations are structured around three main topics:
1. Investing in youth, social entrepreneurship and the creative sector 2. Creative cultural industries as a new engine of growth and vehicle for empowerment community
3. Promoting youth social entrepreneurship among young people
This document is a programme framework that aims to help the mentors to roll out the CASYE mentoring programme.
Thanks to the background analysis and the study of the good practices, we mapped out the competencies needed in the creative and cultural sector to develop a social economy enterprise, and, from there, elaborated a creative mentoring programme to foster creativity, social entrepreneurship and soft skills for beneficiaries.
The model will be useful for mentors who assist both individual entrepreneurs and social enterprises which can develop their activity and include social innovation in the business model and tackle social cohesion in local communities through cultural activities.
The framework identifies the most important items that need to be addressed and acknowledged when mentoring a young person in becoming a social entrepreneur in the field of CCIs.
Before the CASYE framework, the partnership has conducted:
A Research on the social economy landscape, the social and economic situation, the Creative and Cultural industry presence and on the identification of existing models for social entrepreneurs and enterprises in Spain, Italy, Belgium and the UK.
A Collection of good practices of social enterprises in the Creative and Cultural Industry. A total of 15 case studies at the transnational European level on best entrepreneurial development stories, including transfer of knowledge, are available.
The CASYE ecosystem online map is here! Thanks to this map, you will be able to access many existing social enterprises and social initiatives in the cultural and creative field as well as many stakeholders supporting the development of such initiatives.
In particular, this map showcases two kinds of information:
Good practices: the map identifies good practices of social entrepreneurs, social enterprises and/or social initiatives in the creative and cultural field;
Stakeholders: the map presents the CASYE ecosystem that is based on common values and views the same vision to offer support to youth entrepreneurs in the creative European cultural and social sectors.
