The European Economic and Social Committee and the European Commission co-hosted a major participatory event on social entrepreneurship.
Much more than a simple conference, this special Strasbourg event was organised in an interactive way. For two days, the Palais des Congrès became a gigantic forum for meeting and exchange where participants were able to share their experiences, express their concerns, and also tell their success stories. Like bees, participants gathered information, tackled multiple problems and arrived at results that were recorded within the marvellous Palais des Congrès beehive.
The EESC had an important role to play at this event, in so far as it has already tackled the question of social entrepreneurship in its opinions:
As part of the event, armed with this expertise, the EESC facilitated a workshop on systemic change (8).
In the next coming months, the EESC will build on the results of the event and organise its follow-up.
