COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
Training teachers, instructors and mentors to become effective facilitators of knowledge and learning. Supporting a virtual network to share experiences and ideas about piloting, access literature on best practice, and collaborate.
EntreComp + Real World Collaborative Learning to Acquire
A Growth Mindset
Transforming Ideas & Opportunities into
Products and Services of Value to Others
EntreComp is the European Commission's framework for supporting entrepreneurship in all its dimensions.
But what is ENTREPRENEURSHIP if not FOR PURPOSE BUSINESS - the ability to produce services and
products of value to others? EntreComp training supports the acquisition of skills, competences and a growth
mindset for problem-solving that enables EYE trainees to become entrepreneurial with a purpose - from
improving human health to healing the planet from environmental degradation and everything in between. It
bridges the worlds of entrepreneurship as a business startup and entrepreneurship for social impact. Take a
look at the three movements that constitute the themes around which EYE training will take place for ideas
about the greatest challenges facing humankind that need entrepreneurial solutions:
Calling all entrepreneurs!
Creating a structure for the systematic
approach to problem solving
Pilot the EYE Model almost anywhere in the world!

Bridging the gap between
Linkages to Enabling Environments for
the "business" of Entrepreneurship
Empowering Problem Solvers
is the first step toward creating
resilient communities and economic opportunity that lead
to social equity and a healthy planet.
BRIDGING THE WORLDS OF BUSINESS AND SOCIAL IMPACT
EMPOWERING PROBLEM SOLVERS prepares individuals to pursue entrepreneurship through a
two-pronged model of Piloting and Telecollaboration:
Resilient Communities * Economic Opportunity
Social Equity * Environmental Well-Being

A project of Global Skills Network
A feature of EYE to spotlight a major challenge requiring entrepreneurial interventions.
This week, our focus is on water.
To meet the world water crisis, a simple water purifier was invented, developed, and patented at
New Life International. Using common table salt and a 12 volt battery, the water purifier creates
chlorine to disinfect water.Chlorination has saved more lives than, perhaps, any other technology
- Residual from chlorine sanitizes plumbing, medical equipment, fabrics and water containers
- The treatment of surface water and contaminated wells with an on-site generated chlorine from
the New Life water purifier is the quickest solution to contaminated water problems.
The EYE Platform fulfills several functions for
bridging the collaboration gap:
- Supports a virtual showcase of the project's
outcomes - products and services that result
from the piloting activities;
- Creates a venue to bridge the gap between
changemakers with a project and those wanting
to join as collaborators or supporters. This brings
entrepreneurial projects that address SDG/ILO/
SMART Cities goals to life. The platform brings
advocacy to a convergence point between crowd-
sourcing and petition-signing. Its database allows
users to identify who is interested in which theme
or movement and possesses what competences or
skills to forge a solution through entrepreneurship.
Likewise, users can perform searches on the database
for specific topics, common language and geography,
and other prompts to narrow collaboration prospects.
- Supports virtual exchanges amongst participants -
trainees and facilitators - for interactions that can
lead to collaboration. Virtual exchanges are hosted by
trained Erasmus+ facilitators and utilize a number of
virtual connections for several participants simultaneously
appear on the screen.
- Also serves as a dissemination mechanism on
outputs and outcomes, especially important for outreach
to policymakers focused on the SDG/ILO Flagship
Programmes / SMART & Resilient Cities and Communities
issues, bringing a deeper understanding to the complexity
of the problems being addressed by global goals.
Becoming a problem-solving entrepreneur requires engagement in a relevant learning environment, which
can be a traditional classroom, a vocational training programme, entrepreneurship ecosystem co-working
space or anywhere distance learning can be applied in small group learning formats. These are the enabling
environments for piloting the EYE model:
* K-22 Education
* Idea Centers
* Co-Work Sites
* Innovation Centers
* Research Labs

EMPOWERING PROBLEM SOLVERS pilots support E-Incubation to bridge the gap between vision
and action through EntreComp training. Pilots recruit and train mentors and instructors of EntreComp content
delivered through distance learning mechanisms to become effective facilitators, who create Pathways and
linkages so trainees can apply knowledge to a practical application of entrepreneurship. Two
Communities of Practice constitute a unique function of the project to network facilitators to share ideas
and experiences, explore strategies for embedding entrepreneurship education and training into formal
education, become change agents to bring entrepreneurship competencies to an institution, organization
or school and other learning environments, gain access to literature on best practice and on the issue around
which entrepreneurial ventures are being developed, and be mentored by more experienced facilitators.
