Social Entrepreneurs: Have Your Say!

16/01/2014 @ 08:00 - 17/01/2014 @ 17:00

| Free

Have Your Say! is a 2-day event in Strasbourg on 16–17 January 2014 that will bring together all the stakeholders to discuss the issues we face.

This is a great opportunity for all those interested in the field to come together, ”united in diversity“, to co-create a coherent pathway and continue building a healthy and vibrant social entrepreneurship sector right across Europe.

Objectives

  • Take stock of the Social Business Initiative (SBI – 25 October 2011) achievements and implementation
  • Identify the future priorities for action and where the EU could add value and support the scaling-up of social entrepreneurship
  • Engage stakeholders in an innovative and participative environment to shape the European agenda for the next 3–5 years
  • Strengthen stakeholder networks to support the emergence and scaling-up of initiatives and best practises
  • Create more ownership and awareness among institutional actors

Expected Outcomes

  • Strengthen and build the social economy network so that new initiatives are facilitated
  • Strengthen cross-cutting collaboration between key European actors around social innovation
  • Both EU policy-makers and Member State authorities should leave the event with a sense of:
    • The importance of social enterprises for the European economy and its competitiveness
    • The needs of social enterprises
    • What should be done in the years to come to address the remaining bottlenecks (a roadmap from stakeholders addressed to EU institutions)
