CSR Europe’s Business Impact Map (BIM) highlights some of the inspiring partnerships and projects created under the European Pact for Youth.
The European Pact for Youth brought together leaders of Europe, business, education and youth, and created over 23,000 new business-education partnerships. The BIM highlights some of these partnerships and activities, which were implement throughout Europe. The aim is to provide inspiration as well as encourage new partnerships.
Users can navigate these activities easily per country, organisation, and topic. The topics are divided into three categories: business-education partnerships, entrepreneurship education, and VET and apprenticeships. Some of the project pages also display videos and pictures from the activities.
Here are some examples of the projects presented in the BIM:
Business-education partnership – Girls’ Day in Germany 2017 – Samsung
Taking place in four locations in – at its German headquarters in Schwalbach am Taunus, as well as in Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart – Samsung welcomed almost 50 girls to Girls’ Day and gave them exclusive insights into the technical professions of Samsung customer service.
The focus was always on the questions: How do the digital technologies work, which we use every day, and what happens when suddenly and unexpectedly problems occur? What components are included in it and how can they be repaired?
