The EESC has been working on the topic of Social Economy Enterprises for the past decade and a dedicated permanent study group has been created in 2015. In view of the success of the European Day of Social Economy Enterprises in 2016 and 2017, it was proposed to organise a third edition of this event.
The objective was twofold: on the one hand, to review the progress made in building an ecosystem for Social Economy Enterprises and, on the other hand, to see what the next steps are for this enterprise model to be recognised and more widely disseminated. The European Day of Social Economy Enterprises is also an excellent opportunity to give the floor to the actors in the sector. It is a way of getting a comprehensive view of the situation, creating synergies and discussing how to progress towards to a systemic change at European level.
