Good Practices of Social Entrepreneurship in Europe: Past, Present & Future

1 month 3 weeks ago

The SEYW (“The added value of Social Entrepreneurship in Youth Work”) Consortium would like to invite you to take part in the Online Conference that will take place online and be broadcasted via the Zoom platform on Tuesday, 23rd March 2021.

The conference is part of the dissemination of “The added value of Social Entrepreneurship in Youth Work”, a 30 months' project financed by the Italian National Agency for Youth under the KA2 Strategic Partnership Action of the Erasmus + Youth Programme.

The project involves 6 partners from different EU countries: TDM 2000 (Coordinator, Italy), Law & Internet Foundation (Bulgaria), Co-Actions (France), Institute for Entrepreneurship Development (Greece), Artsquare (Luxembourg) and Sotsiaalsete Ettevõtete Võrgustik (Estonia).

With this online event we aim at disseminating some of the best practices in the field of social entrepreneurship we encountered during the meetings of the SEYW project, as well as other interesting tools that can be useful to be adapted in other. The conference wants to give an overview of existing activities in the 6 countries that are part of the project and how they coped with the COVID19 situation, and provide inspiration for new actions in the fields of social entrepreneurship and youth work. The event is thought and directed to youth workers, social entrepreneurs, social innovators, policy makers in the field of youth, education and employment, and other interested stakeholders.
