The main purpose of the conference is to boost social economy enterprises in South East Europe (SEE) region countries: Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo*, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Albania, Romania and Bulgaria. It provides a platform for development of social economy enterprises in SEE, it acts as a forum for the exchange of public and private experience across Europe, it represents a networking opportunity and it aims to contribute to a common strategy for the region.

This unique event deals with the following horizontal issues:

  • Promoting European values through partnerships and social economy;
  • Promoting social inclusion and jobs creation through partnerships and social economy;
  • Promoting bottom up creation of regional networks through development cooperation programmes and IPA in case of candidate countries and EU sources of financing – particularly how to better use European Structural and Investment Funds to develop social entrepreneurship and social economy as a whole.

The regional conference will operate on both top-down and bottom-up levels: firstly to create and develop synergies between the states, local authorities and social economy actors; and secondly to boost social economy enterprises and identification and anticipation of their needs on the decision making policy levels. The final goal of the conference is to create a mid-term plan for boosting social economy enterprises in SEE. Participation on the conference is free of charge, you can register online HERE.
