In connection with the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the most important European players in the field of social economy gather in Gothenburg, at a conference highlighting the role of social economy in creating a stronger and more resilient Europe.
The “Social Economy 2023 – Building a stronger and resilient Europe“’ conference is planned in close cooperation with European experts and stakeholders, and it will be focused on the Social Economy Action Plan and its implementation. It builds on last year’s Strasbourg conference “Social Economy – Future of Europe” which was included in the official program of the French Presidency and it bridges to the equivalent event to be held under the coming Spanish presidency in San Sebastian, on 13-14 November 2023.
The conference also aims to highlight the circumstances around social economy in both southern and northern Europe, thus providing a basis for Council’s further work in this sector.
The draft program will be published soon.
Date: 8th of June 2023 at the School of Economics, University of Gothenburg, although parallel international meetings and events will take place on 7 and 9 June 2023 in the city.
The conference is organized by Coompanion in collaboration with Social Economy Europe, REVES and CECOP. With support from the Region Västra Götaland, School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg and Fremia.
