In a lively discussion held at the first Israeli round tables at Oranim College, the following topics were discussed:

The project will designed according to Silice objectives and experiences:  training faculty/ staff to teach social entrepreneurship in different cultural locations: India, Europe and Israel

The aim of the course / online database is to provide educative social entrepreneurship materials for the faculty.

The Means: Establishing a database that will include tools for teaching social entrepreneurship in different cultures. The tools will include presentations, lectures, and case studies that will be used by participants, according to their needs.

The database will be organized in to 10 – 15 main topics , forming a basis for a complete course ,organized according to the axis process for  establishing social entrepreneurship (locating a need, mapping partners, establishing a team, etc.)

Among the other materials , a summary of the joint trainings (in Europe, India and Israel)will be available, including presentations and study materials that were shown in each training, impressions from visits in social initiatives, and more

Each topic will be made up of materials and examples from different countries, in a manner emphasizing the local uniqueness, and the various ways to deal with common challenges

Each lesson will be organized around one topic in the process of building social entrepreneurship, and will be demonstrated by presenting one need (aging, recycling, solar energy, agriculture, etc.)

Implementation:

  1. Building a Work Team assigned with promoting the database project. The team will include a representative from each Silice participating institution: 5 from Israel and 5 from India.
  2. The work team (Indians and Israelis) will hold a meeting (online, as soon as possible) in order to decide on the lessons’ subjects (10 to 15 lessons).
  3. Each college’s representatives will be responsible for the organizing and editing of information for its institution by dispersing the work among his colleagues: teachers and managers that are taking part in Silice.

4.Despite the responsibility of each institution for one subject, it is expected from  all institution partners to transfer additional relevant materials regarding all the subjects/ lessons, in addition to their own subject.

First Things To do

  1. Establish an Indian team (an Israeli team was established at the meeting in Oranim)
  2. Gathering a first  joined meeting of the Indian-Israeli work team
