A joint initiative between JA Europe and Hyundai Motor Europe, Skills for the Future aims to inspire a more entrepreneurial generation that can clearly connect their education and future careers, with a focus on sustainability in business.
Young British entrepreneurs SoberDrive, who won the Hyundai Skills for the Future Award in 2015, will be at the Asia Pacific Junior Achievement (JA) Company of the Year Competition in Seoul, Korea on February 21-24.
‘SoberDrive’ from the United Kingdom won the Hyundai Skills for the Future Award. The student team included George Kershaw Houghton, Edward Kershaw Houghton, Callum Coles, Samuel Roberts and Lauren Palmer, and was chosen based on their winning concept of a socially responsible company, helping to reduce drink driving related incidences.
Across Europe this academic year, fifteen countries will run the JAYE Europe – Hyundai Skills for the Future programme 2014-2015. That represents a 300% increase in the number of countries participating since Hyundai Motor Europe started its collaboration with JAYE Europe in 2012. Inspired by the impact of the initiative on young students, schools in seven new countries will integrate the programme into their academic activities this school year 2014-2015. These are Denmark, Norway, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, the Netherlands, and Austria.
