O3 SOMRA Green Entrepreneurship Training

While the previous intellectual outputs provide stand-alone resources that can be used right away by individuals either alone or in combination, this third output is targeting the main beneficiary target group directly and offers a flexible and engaging entry into the green entrepreneurship sector. The SOMRA Training (IO3) will foster environmental competences as well as green entrepreneurship and civic competences of low-qualified migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

The training will focus on how current and local/regional environmental issues can be identified and solved in an innovative and cost-effective way as well as necessary skills for successful green entrepreneurship in NGOs. This also includes for example resourceful living, because this aspect is important in relation to sustainable living and cost-effective living, relevant for people with low income.

Another important aspect is that the training will foster relevant competences of the target group which will also enhance their employability potential as they gain localised experiences that can be transferred and validated in a broad manner.

Additionally, participants have opportunities to experience self-efficacy and positive feedback from local society, which enables them to increase their self-confidence as well.

The SOMRA Training is concepted as a blended-learning training, meaning it combines face-to-face lessons and online self-directed learning activities.

This output will include

  • Guidelines for trainers on how to deliver the training and steer the self-directed learning phases (e.g. adult educators, migrant support workers)
  • A curriculum of a blended-learning course, including ECVET learning outcomes, lesson plans for F2F parts and activity instructions and descriptions for self-directed online learning
  • The curriculum will consist of
    • 2 main modules, which will have several sub-units: Green lifestyle and environmental challenges & founding, maintaining and participating in a NGO and grassroots activities. 
    • 1 additional module focused on digital literacy and learning to learn activities. This is aimed specifically at participants with fewer opportunities who lack these competences when starting the SOMRA Training.
    • Min. 20 subunits which are designed as tiny learning bits of approximately 1,5 hours each. These will contain online and offline learning content, because it is important to allow flexible self-directed learning phases as well as F2F-workshops that support social exchange and local networking with the peer group.
The output will be tested and available in all project languages by end of October 2022.
