The second training of the project “Students Today – Responsible Entrepreneurs Tomorrow” was conducted in the period 01.07.05.2017 in Rijeka-Croatia. The purpose of this training was to offer new knowledge and create a learning space for students already created by virtual student companies and to offer them the opportunity to practice skills that are truly usable in the business sector. In the first two days, students confirmed theoretical knowledge about CSR and SP and presented their businesses (the students who created them). During the training several visits to successful companies with CSR practices and social arrangements were realized: the students visited the local organization “Street lights” – a magazine sold by the homeless, O.U. “Nikola Tesla”, who runs economic activity – produces and sells magnets made by students (including magnets with the image of Balthazar from the eponymous cartoon), the National Croatian Energy Company (HEP), which held a workshop on their activities for CSR, the municipality of Rijeka held a presentation on the startups and shared a brief overview of the economy in the region, the Macedonian Community in Rijeka, which held a presentation for their non-profit organization.
