DOIT project goal is to contribute to youth employment, to create new jobs in the social economy by nurturing in young pupils' seeds for active social innovation: entrepreneurial mind-sets, knowhow, and skills. The project empowers primary and secondary school pupils (6-16 years) alongside educators to apply open innovation methods, digital maker tools and collaboration skills to tackle societal problems. It will develop ground-breaking DOIT toolboxes for children as well facilitators, which provide complementary knowhow and support. They are designed for experiencing being a social innovator in mobile and fixed child-friendly makerspaces and are easily accessible at the interactive DOIT web-platform. We have 13 partners from 11 countries.
