SEWF Rural Forum 27-28 October

Do you work in rural social enterprise or rural community development? Join SEWF’s first-ever virtual Rural Forum (27-28 October) to connect and learn from rural social enterprises from around the world. Social enterprises are often the glue that keeps rural communities together yet face a range of challenges different to those in urban communities. That’s why we are partnering with leading rural social enterprises in Canada, Australia, Scotland, India and elsewhere to create this event to support, connect and build the rural social enterprise community.

SEWF Social Enterprise Verification

On 29 September, we launched our pilot SEWF Social Enterprise Verification Programme. This programme was designed in consultation with our partners around the world who have been leading the way on social enterprise verification for years within their respective countries and regions. In contrast to these globally respected verifications, SEWF Verification seeks to address the gap in social enterprise verification: this is our answer to market access for social enterprises in countries around the world where verification does not exist.

All recordings from SEWF 2021 are now available to SEWF 2021 ticket holders only via the SEWF 2021 Video Library on SEWF’s website. If the direct link does not work for you, or if you lose this email, you can find this page under the ‘News & Insights’ tab on the SEWF website. Please note that if you don’t see “Video Library – SEWF 2021” as a menu option on the SEWF website, you may need to clear your cache and cookies and reload your browser for it to appear. 

To access the videos, you will need an email and password. You MUST use the email you used to register for SEWF 2021 on Hopin. The first time you attempt to access the videos, most of you will have to create a password for future access. Click the ‘Lost password’ link below the email and password fields and enter the email you used to access the event on Hopin. Once you have created a password, you will be able to log in and access the SEWF 2021 Video Library.

These password reset emails from WordPress often filter directly into spam or junk folders so please check those if you do not receive the email immediately.

If you are a member of the CoP, you will be able to use the email and password you use to access the CoP to gain access to the recordings from SEWF 2021. There is no need for you to reset your password. 

If you are looking for a particular recording that you can’t find, or that is giving you an error message, the SEWF Team is aware of the problem and we are working to fix all of these over the weekend. Check back next week and if you still cannot find the recording you’re looking for, email us at 

All SEWF 2021 recordings will be available until September 2022. All SEWF content must not be used for any other purposes other than individual personal/professional learning and it must not be distributed without SEWF’s permission.


All of the SEWF 2021 Youth Forum recordings are also available in the main SEWF Video Library. You will need to create a password if you have never accessed the SEWF Video Library or the SEWF 2021 Video Library before, but if you have watched any of SEWF’s recorded material on our website, you can simply login using your email and password. If you would like to share this content with others in your network for their own personal and professional learning, all SEWF content in the Video Library is available to anyone who signs up to the SEWF mailing list. Instead of logging in, they can subscribe and will eventually get access. Please note that this process is not immediate.

Pioneers Post: SEWF 2021: Social enterprise is ‘proof of concept’ for tomorrow’s economy

“Social enterprise is “proof of concept” for tomorrow’s economy and the movement needs to stop seeing itself as existing on the margins.

“So says Doughnut Economics Action Lab’s recently appointed business and enterprise lead Erinch Sahan.”  Read published articles about SEWF 2021 from SEWF Promotional Partner, Pioneers Post.
