It’s with great pride that we announce our 4th, 5th 6th and 7th Living Labs under the YOU-SMILE project. The YOU-SMILE living labs took place on the 7th of May in São Miguel island, Azores. The initiative covered four living labs strategically located on São Miguel, a renowned Portuguese island included in the Açores archipelago. These living labs are Circular Economy, Personal Finance, Social Entrepreneurship, and Sustainable/Green Marketing. The implementation of YOU-SMILE project is supported by Erasmus+. The main event of the project was held at the Vocational Education and Training school at Rabo de Peixe, Ribeira Grande municipality.

During the session, the following the three main topics were discussed: Sustainable Tourism Services in Rural Areas, Entrepreneurship, and Finance. Considering that the participants had insufficient knowledge about the fields outlined, the pedagogical model started with the familiarity of primary concepts. The model used Canva presentation framework and Mentimeter used to measure the level of interest of the young adults to the relevant topics of the next living labs that will be compiled into educational programming. This pedagogical methodology has added the upbringing basis of what education on innovation and sustainability would look like within the realm of entrepreneurship.
