GROWING ECOSYSTEMS FOR SOCIAL IMPACT: EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBLE
Rotterdam, 7-9 March
The Euclid Summit is Euclid Network’s flagship pan-European event. Organised in association with the City of Rotterdam, the Euclid Summit 2018 is a 2-day gathering bringing together people and organisations from across Europe to learn from, encourage and inspire each other to drive positive change.
Growing ecosystems is a job for all stakeholders: cities/regions, national governments, networks and support organisations, universities, businesses, social investors – and not least social entrepreneurs and civil society organisations.
Crucial elements in developing favourable ecosystems for social enterprises to start up, scale up and sustainably create positive social impact include availability of affordable coaching, capacity-building and management training. Social impact needs to be measured effectively and the results should be disseminated. Public procurement needs to favour social enterprises as suppliers, which may require culture changes in public authorities. Social entrepreneurs and support organisations would benefit from strong national and international connections and partnerships.
European countries increasingly recognise the potential of social enterprises to create sustainable employment opportunities while tackling neglected societal problems. All over Europe, cities, regions and countries are working to create an enabling environment for social enterprises to thrive.
