  1. the  project ,,Promoting ecological-entrepreneurship activities in rural areas" is developed in synergy with the project" Supporting entrepreneurship education in Europe and Eurasia ", which is implementing in period February 1, 2017 - January 31, 2020, financed by USAID and implement by Junior Achievement Moldova. During the 23 years of activity, JA Moldova gradually brought into the context of the pre-university school in the country entrepreneurial training programs, which at the moment form a network of 130 preuniversitary education institutions both in urban and rural areas, including the left side of the Dniester River. The aim of the project is to promote economic education and ecological - entrepreneurial culture among young people from rural areas of the Republic of Moldova, by ensuring and consolidating economic, ecological and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. Taking into account the fact that there is a large number of high schools in the country, the quality of training in the entrepreneurial education sector, with a focus on protecting the environment and reducing carbon emissions, is inconsistent and does not meet current needs and does not contribute significantly to the development of entrepreneurial capacities of young people, which leads to the fact that many young people, especially rural people, are at risk, which leads to their social exclusion, and the environment in the communities where these young people live leaves much to be desired.
