ECEC Launch new schools in Ivory Coast
Date: October 2014
Venue: Belgium Business School
Last October we were invited to Belgium to meet with a Canadian Head Teacher, Rino Levesque, to discuss new educational models that go beyond grades and academia and that focus on restoring and rejuvenating communities as a whole.
Rino and his team of Conscious Entrepreneurs invited guests to the Belgium business school to celebrate launch of more schools opening this year; here is a short recap of the event:
A Canadian school of entrepreneurship culture settles in Ivory Coast
The Community School entrepreneurial conscious (ECEC) based on personal development with a social impact, aimed at individuals, artisans of their lives, settled on Ivorian territory for the first time through the Alfred Nobel Foundation, found APA on Wednesday in the Ivorian economic capital. The founder of the International Organisation of entrepreneurial community schools aware (Oiecec), Rino Levesque said the goal of the ECEC is to develop an entrepreneurial culture, not only on the individual but also on the environment those who practice it.
Rino Levesque explained during a press conference that the personal development taught in this programme allows young people to be entrepreneurs with better leadership.
According to him, from primary school to secondary school to higher education, children and young people learn at school 'to undertake innovation and create "a conscious, responsible and independent.
"These young people will contribute to the development of businesses and different organisations and will form an indispensable tool for Côte d'Ivoire. They will become more entrepreneurial and more innovative.
Rino Levesque also said that the condition for receiving this training stems from the desire of institutions. "There are no real criteria, just for schools to express an interest".
ECEC is recognised as an educational model for the future by Unesco, is a school system with 21 structural components implemented gradually and giving access to international recognition.
ECEC's vision for interconnectivity and topical, relevant, sustainable development is truly inspired and we categorically believe that it should be implemented within the UK. We are looking for support to turn words into action and to make this happen!
