Abstract

The model described in this paper offers a widely accessible mean to mobilise individuals with small financial resources to support community-based production all over the world in a wide range of settings. Projects formulated on the base of this model can support income generation through production at community level, hence supporting socially and environmentally sustainable production patterns. Students involved in the projects act as micro social entrepreneurs. They become educated about an entire value chain. Through learning by doing they familiarise with potentials and limitations of community based production. Projects implemented based on this model can successfully combine sustainable development, social entrepreneurship and education.
