Appendix I: Going local reports

In order to find out what needs there are regarding social enterprise in the major part of the European Union, members of the project group participated in several going local missions to reach out to civil society and build a bridge between the situation on the ground and the institutional level. The overall objective of this going local initiative was to gather elements that would make it possible to identify what measures were lacking, so as to recommend measures in the final report to the new Commission and Parliament with a view to improving the ecosystem of the sector and unleashing its full potential.

The countries visited were the United Kingdom, Finland, Latvia, Turkey, Greece, Sweden, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Ireland and Croatia.

The following going local reports present key findings of interest whose results were analysed and summarised in the report's recommendations.
