Julian Tuwim Primary School no. 199, Poland

Entrepreneurship is a way of looking at the world and finding a place for yourself in it. It is innovativeness and creativity in thought and action. It is being brave enough to realize your own ideas and dreams, which in one way is simply taking advantage of opportunities and on the other hand, being able to adapt to changing conditions. It is being ready to take risks, and taking responsibility for decisions which you made. This requires extreme determination in achieving a goal, which results in consequences from actions.

 Children who learn how to be entrepreneurial take challenges, try to find solutions to problems, take on responsibilities for their actions and take better advantage of their own talent and capabilities.
