A side event to the Social Summit will take place in Gothenburg on 16 November, to discuss the role of Social Economy in the future of work.
The European Commission together with the European Economic and Social Committee, the City of Gothenburg and Region Västra Götaland will organise a conference regrouping a wide range of stakeholders from the European Social Economy ecosystem.
Social entrepreneurs and their representative organisations, policy-makers, and academics are invited to participate, share good practices and present real life examples.
In the margins of the Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth, the discussions will shed light on the potential of Social Economy to create growth and sustainable jobs, and achieve social resilience. In addition, a special focus will be put on the role of cooperative societies and on how to create favourable ecosystems for Social Economy to develop in European regions.
