About this event

There are new opportunities to develop the island economy, increasing linkages between business and markets in both jurisdictions.

How can we ensure that communities benefit from these opportunities? What can we do the level the playing field for all communities?

Do social enterprises hold a part of the solution?

What other approaches, such as community wealth building, community ownership or ensuring social and environmental community benefit in tendering processes, could be developed to tie economic benefits to social and environmental considerations?


This workshop is part of a series hosted by iCommunity, a joint project of NICVA and The Wheel, which is bringing together nonprofits and social enterprises in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to learn from shared experiences. The workshops follow exploratory discussions in February and March, which will inform the agenda of the forthcoming workshops.

The workshop is aimed at the staff and volunteers of charities, community groups, NGOs and social enterprises based in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. All welcome!

This is a hybrid event and there are a limited number of in-person places available. Please note, once registered, it’s not possible to change your ticket from in-person to online attendance and vice versa.
