Reasons to advocate Social Entrepreneurship :The organic law of Spanish education picks up the proposal of the European Union ofconverged education. It considers the development of entrepreneurship spirit like one of theeight key capacities of life long learning.Social entrepreneurship depends on attitudes that can be taught and abilities that can bedeveloped.Developing in children capacities of social entrepreneurship fosters their individual welfare,strenghtens their self-confidence and provides possibilities in the future for their professionalcarrer, as well as reflecting benefits to their surroundings.The Ministry of Education and Cience of the Spanish Government proposes that thechallenge of education should be assumed not only by administrations and schools, but bythe whole society.In this sense TATEIJU España and TEGI, want to put their part to the individual and socialdevelopment of students, implementing the workshop: Kids Today – Tomorrow´s SocialEntrepreneurs
