Phase 3  transforms the resource

nodes into hubs able to branch out

into communities in close proximity

or focus on a specific topic or target

group. This helps establish the model

in whatever context is of importance

to that community or groups in terms

of focusing on the SDGs. The

Community of Practice is mobilized

toward serving a complementary role

of helping craft a vision for groups 

wanting to replicate the model.

Phase 2 scales the RNs in geographic

scope and the contexts within which the

model can be applied and deepened

while maintaining a focus on addressing 

the SDGs. ​​​Partners in this phase include 

a mix of academic institutions, nonprofits,
entrepreneurship ecosystems, idea and 

innovation centers, formal and non-formal 

learning environments and others. They 

will participate as additional resource 

nodes to recruit beneficiaries for training 

to become ​entrepreneurial. 


The model is rolled out in three phases: 

Phase 1 involves designing, developing and deploying

RESOURCE NODE prototypes that focus on program

delivery to diverse beneficiaries, most of whom will be

directly affected by the SDGs, or concentrated on topics

related to the Global Goals. Here is a sampling of

possible focused Resource Nodes located within the geolocation clusters identified for the project:

- Middle East Area:
* Lebanon: ameliorating conditions that deny

refugees the means to become autonomous 

and productive

* Alexandria Egypt: looks at the peace-building
process and intercultural dialogue

* Istanbul Turkey: development of ICT-based 

entrepreneurship for digital transformation of SMEs

​* Beersheba Israel: entrepreneurship training in 

tertiary education  

* Tunis Tunisia: disengaged/unemployed youth

- Pacific/Oceania/Island Nations
* Micronesia: a model for island nations with

large groups directly impacted by the SDGs

- Europe
* Murcia Spain: advocacy around the disabled  

* Tirana Albania: looks at the needs of a rural
* Kaunas Lithuania: new models to support
SMEs that hire, increase revenues, secure 
capital and innovate to support economic
development of regions

* Transylvania Romania: reaching out to
marginalized and disadvantaged communities

* Galway Ireland: agrifoods

* Aas Norway:  integrated livestock systems,

grassland management and training 

* Helsinki Finland: targeting early school leavers 
and preventing high school dropouts

* Zaandam The Netherlands: Prison education
​* Bryansk Russia: agrifoods/biointensive gardening  
* Plovdiv Bulgaria: reversing emigration crisis - the 
"brain drain" of young professionals

* Palermo Italy:  cross-border/transnational

nonprofit collaboration 

* Lisbon Portugal: e-learning
* Stockholm Sweden: solo entrepreneurship
in the gig economy

* Barcelona Spain: the home of SMART Cities 
Expo and resilient communities networks

- North America
* Maryland: engages retirees and seniors as

entrepreneurs, mentors and volunteers 
* Detroit MI: coalesces people attempting to

rebuild a devastated community

* Quebec: rural education
* Miami FL: addresses the needs of immigrants

* Las Vegas NV: higher ed/K-12 public school 

district partnerships 
* Lawrence KS: startups/entrepreneurship 


* Irvine CA: social innovation directed 

by philanthropy 

- Central America

Puebla Mexico: academic research on effective 

pedagogies in K-12 education

foster care

​* Henderson New Zealand:  ecotourism 

* Sydney Australia: innovation in mass transit  

EMPOWERING PROBLEM SOLVERSResource Nodes support the project's

Communities of Practice, linked virtually so that our partners can share information,

experiences and resources. This will prove to be an invaluable resource for teachers

anywhere, regardless of whether they are associated with a Resource Node, as there

are currently no communities of practice specifically created for the Global Goals. 

Learning facilitators at the

Resource Nodes are on the

frontline of the

One Plan 4 One Planet model,

and in a changing world there

are ever more demands on

their time and expertise. For

this reason, the project

supports a Community of

Practice for the SDGs, where

trainers and staff can network

with each other and engage in

ongoing professional



Entrepreneurship education is

perceived as an add-on in most

education systems, and there usually is no clear understanding of how related teaching

pedagogies and didactics can actually support curriculum and subject delivery while

potentially addressing wider learning priorities such as learnerengagement, citizenship,

social cohesion or employability.

With the One Plan 4 One Planet
Training Model Community of Practice, we empower our

learning facilitators and trainers to rethink the skills they have or need to acquire and how

they can be used, by seeing their own strengths and using them to improve the quality and inclusiveness of teaching and learning. The Community of Practice attempts to build a bridge 

from the learning environments in which our model is implemented and raining is conducted

to best practice, thus supporting capacity building for a range of instructors and learning

facilitators to deliver entrepreneurship education through ​​their teaching.
