NEW CONCEPT – MORE IMPACT
A large international conference, as #EUSES2020 was planned, could not take place on 26-27 November 2020 due to COVID-19.
The new concept following one goal: Provide more space for sessions, present more stakeholder and strengthen the social economy in Europe! The #EUSES comes up with a great solution to network, inspire and present your projects. From September on, we will offer monthly online European Social Economy Exchange Events which will dive deep into specific areas of the #EuropeanSocialEconomy and prepare us for the main #EUSES conference on the 26 – 27 May 2021. Stay tuned!
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.
