EUROCITIES has prepared a publication on the role of cities in promoting social entrepreneurship. This publication is based on the work of the EUROCITIES WG Smart Social Inclusion which has been gathering practices from its members.
We collected and analysed good practices from 11 cities across the EU on city initiatives to promote social economy and social entrepreneurship. This report looks into the tools cities use to support the social economy – funding, network of social economy actors, infrastructure and impact hubs – as well as the success factors, bottlenecks and challenges, and puts forward several recommendations. You can read the final report hereunder.
The publication was presented during the Social Affairs Forum in Utrecht on 7-8 February.
