Every day in Europe, 2.8 million social economy enterprises employing some 19.1 million people run their businesses sustainably while helping to create a better world. They are working towards an inclusive and circular economy and a more cohesive society.
SIF2019 is celebrating social entrepreneurs and organizations that have developed impactful and sustainable models in promoting inclusive growth in the fields green economy, agriculture and social inclusion across the region of Southeast Europe. We will discuss with social entrepreneurs how to develop sustainable businesses and explore the best practices across sectors in supporting and financing social innovations. Together with key actors in the region, we will spark interesting conversations on how we can further strengthen social economy enterprises and social innovations, thus pave the way towards a more sustainable, inclusive economy.
