The Finnish Education Innovation Me & MyCity will start operating in Beijing in early July. Me & MyCity is based on a Finnish concept called Yrityskylä, which EduTAT exports to the international market.
The idea of circular economy as a natural part of society is an integral part of EduTAT’s and Economy and Youth TAT’s learning concepts.
In addition to commercial and economic skills, Me & My Business -courses teach young people future working life skills. These skills are based on a common European guideline for entrepreneurship education.
According to the study of the University of Vaasa, a gamified learning environment targeted at ninth-graders enhances youth economic knowledge significantly.
November has been hectic in Me & MyCity’s in Finland as the learning innovation has received visitors from the highest echelons of society.
Me & MyCity tried its wings for the first time outside of Finland’s borders. The Me & MyCity -concept was tested in a small scale setting in Beijing.
