    CG8: Social entrepreneurship education in higher education for the development of creativity and social innovation

    Co-Moderator: Prof. Vanna Boffo

    We are living through the most rapidly changing time in human history. Technological changes and innova-tion trends are quickly sharping jobs and professions. Among the many challenges this creates is the challenge of educating the next generation. How do you create an education system for a future that is so hard to envision? What do we need education to achieve? (British Council, 2017). Social entrepreneurship could provide at least part of the answer.
    Entrepreneurship, at its root, is about creating value. The topic refers to a great variety of meanings. Too often, the value of entrepreneurship is only considered in its narrow economic sense. Social entrepreneurship by contrast is explicitly about acting upon opportunities and ideas and transforming them into value for others (Bacigalupo et al, 2016): economic, social cultural, and environmental value. In this sense, entrepreneurship is emerging as an educational concept that could support students’ growth to face new challenges today and in the future (Boffo, 2018).
    Starting from a theoretical analysis of definitions, the comparative group will focus on three levels: the macro level of policies and measures to bolster social entrepreneurship education in Higher Education; the meso level of educational programs implement in universities; the micro level of tools and methods to support the development of creativity and social innovation.
