The session wants to critically discuss if and how public and private institutions and organisations that aim to develop “active citizens”, “civic engaged” and democratic consciousness stimulates the growth of social and political entrepreneurs. The development of such processes can, for example, especially be in relation to higher education institutions, municipalities and regional organisations, as well as various forms of NGO’s. Experiences and good examples, with special focus on what works and what does not, are welcome as well as critical conceptual discussions and theoretical contributions.
