DON'T MISS the Social Economy Scientific Conference #SES2020, a two-day digital event on the future of social economy in Europe!
The European Commission announced a forthcoming European Action Plan for the Social Economy to enhance social investment and social innovation and to boost the potential of social enterprises to create jobs. This policy initiative to be released during the second semester 2021, will be a key tool to systematically incorporate the social economy into the different socio-economic policies of the European Union, as well as into its actions to achieve theSustainable Development Goals.
Impact Invest's CEO - Ruth Brännvall has been contracted by the European Commission as a researcher and expert on the topic of social innovation, entrepreneurship and impact investing and will provide her take on the issue in the event's 1st session on November 24.
At the #SES2020, a vibrant network of distinguished researchers and academic scholars will discuss how the future of social economy could and should look like, providing an original contribution to the rethinking of our socio-economic spaces. The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has increased the visibility of the social economy’s contribution to socio-economic development and social cohesion, demonstrating that it is an essential part of Europe’s safety net in times of crisis, thanks to its leadership in providing essential goods and services to the most deprived. Therefore social economy could play an important role in the recovery phase. The #SES2020 will look at the social economy as a driver of change, and on this basis will discuss how social economy will contribute to bounce forward our societies in the next normal.
The future-oriented objective of the #SES2020 is to collect a comprehensive body of knowledge that will anticipate the most relevant changes within and outside the social economy, in order to understand its potential role and contribution in the next decades and feed the European Commission’s policy reflection.
