JOIN THE #EUSES2020
The ‘European Social Economy Summit’ (#EUSES2020) is a jointly organized conference by the European Commission and the City of Mannheim. The #EUSES2020 is a conference which aims at strengthening the social economy in Europe and harness its contribution to economic development, social inclusion as well as green and digital transitions. The discussions will focus on three dimensions: digitalisation of the Social Economy, (social) innovation, cross-country and cross-sectoral collaboration.
The #EUSES2020 is an opportunity to bring all stakeholders active in the social economy together.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Social economy and social enterprises create jobs, provide accessible services, foster up-skilling, address environmental challenges and strengthen communities. They carry potential for social innovation and social cohesion. They contribute positively to economy and society at large. Social economy and Social enterprises are indeed an excellent example of an “Economy that works for people”.
The Summit will bring together public and private stakeholders, civil society representatives and scholars to discuss the future, network, inform, and increase the visibility of social economy and social enterprises policies, with the aim of exchanging good practices and success stories and supporting peer learning.
The programme will be co-created by the City of Mannheim, the European Commission and the participating stakeholders, across the two days.
Three thematic angles are suggested to frame the programme of the European Social Economy Summit:
Collaboration: Addressing today’s most pressing challenges requires developing the capacity to lead collaboratively and to effectively work across sectors and countries.
Innovation: Social innovation is the process of developing and deploying effective new solutions to challenging and often systemic social and environmental issues in support of social progress.
Digitalisation: Digitalisation in the Social Economy is already having a substantial impact on social and economic prospects worldwide.
APPLY NOW WITH YOUR SESSION
Stakeholder sessions are an excellent opportunity to engage with a diverse audience representing the large variety of actors active in the field all over Europe. The discussions can influence policy making both at EU and national context. They can also empower stakeholder organisations with new approaches and methods.
All sessions should illustrate how social economy can best contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, they should show on how social economy can help implement the political priorities of the new Commission over the next five years (e.g. the European Green Deal, an economy that works for people, a Europe fit for the digital age and a new push for European democracy), and more specifically, feed the preparation of the European Commission’s Action Plan on Social Economy announced for 2021.
Apply until the 27th March 2020.
