The social economy (SE) generates up to €1.4bn in economic activity and addresses many challenges faced by Irish society each year. Higher Education Institutes have the potential to meaningfully support the Social Ecomomy eco-system through targeted teaching and learning support for the SE community and supporting stakeholders.
Join our keynote speakers:
Alessandro Rancati, Social Economy Canvas Specialist, EU Policy Lab, European Commission
Patrick Klein, Head of Sector – Social Economy and Social enterprise, European Commission
This will be followed by a Round Table Discussion covering topics such as: SE Connections, Reimaging SE place Waterford Cultural Quarter), Youth volunteer eco-system. Connecting with the SE Community and SE and the green agenda.
Launched in February 2018, the European Social Economy Regions (ESER) initiative is a response of the European Commission to the growing need to increase the visibility of social economy and build networks of stakeholders at regional and local level. This workshop is part of the ESER 2021 programme of activities.
