Pilot trainings were a success

During January – March 2020 the training programme was piloted in Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Latvia. Due to the coronavirus epidemic some of the training days were cancelled.

In Finland, SAMK piloted three modules: Managing Green Micro Business, Understanding Green Consumers and Building a Green Brand in cooperation with Livia College.

University of Tartu Pärnu College, in Estonia piloted the training program with 3 seminar days covering almost all modules. The places in Estonia were carefully picked to inspire the participants and to add extra value to the training.

In Sweden, University of Södertörn has piloted the whole training programme in Gotland with micro-entrepreneurs and provided seven sessions together with the participants, one of them digital. The training programme has also been tested in Vallentuna with students.

In Latvia, ViA has piloted the training programme with micro-entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs were active, because they are looking for the new and additional distribution channels due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Powerpoint presentations and videos from the training days are available in these webpages. Each module has its own subpage for the materials.

Additionally to the piloting of the training programme, all partners organized seminars to promote the piloting training in autumn 2019.
