TACSO P2P supported the participation of 32 social entrepreneurs and CSO members in “Social Entrepreneurs: Have Your Say” with a view to bringing in the perspective and experiences of IPA countries to discussions about the future of Social Entrepreneurship in the EU.

The purpose of the event was to take stock of the Social Business Initiative Impact and developments of social economy in Europe, to identify future priorities for action, to strengthen stakeholders networks and to raise awareness, ownership and collaboration among institutional actors.

This event provided an important opportunity for participants from IPA countries to meet and network with their EU counterparts, to share and learn from different experiences in the EU and the region as well as contribute their perspectives to the Strasbourg Declaration – an important policy document that will influence EU support to social entrepreneurship in the coming years.

There were a total of 1500 participants in the event, and different sessions facilitated the interaction and discussions among participants, maximizing learning and networking.
