Abstract: The H2020 project DOIT and its 13 partners contribute to youth employment and to the creation of new jobs in the social economy by nurturing in young pupils’ 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. In this paper, the authors introduce to the background and approach of the project and the design of its learning activities called “DOIT actions”.
