Updates from the European Social Economy Summit Manneheim 2021

#EUSES PROGRAMME ONLINE: Join the European Social Economy Summit 26 - 27 May 2021 | 9 AM - 6 PM

The #EUSES will offer a forum for numerous exchanges on the role of social economy in Europe as a vector for economic development and social inclusion. The summit will be an opportunity to discuss how social economy can help reshape the economy post-COVID by promoting inclusive sustainable economic models for the green and digital transition within Europe. Social economy and social enterprises create jobs, provide accessible services, foster upskilling, address environmental challenges and strengthen communities. They carry potential for social innovation and social cohesion. They contribute positively to the economy and society at large. Social economy and social enterprises are an excellent example of “An economy that works for people.” The #EUSES will bring together public and private stakeholders, policy makers, civil society representatives, and academia. Participants will discuss, network, inform, exchange best practices and success stories, and foster peer-learning. With more than 80 stakeholder sessions and approximately 300 participating organisations from across Europe, #EUSES will be a unique experience. CHECK OUT THE PROGRAMME OR REGISTER NOW FOR FREE
