MESIL Learning and Teaching Activities in 2019

In 2019, the MESIL team will conduct two social entrepreneurship workshops with staff and students from Jordan and Germany. Our target audience is interdisciplinary addressing students from architecture, landscape design, economics, agriculture, rural development and management alike.

The first workshop will focus on rural entrepreneurship and sustainable tourism and take place in Jordan in the period 22.-29. of June, 2019. The second workshop will take Jordanian students to Germany in fall 2019, the exact dates will be announced soon. DAAD grants for travel and subsistence are available for both.

For both workshops, participation in the preparatory online course 'Social Entrepreneurship for Local Change' is a prerequisite.
