The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the European Action Plan for the Social Economy, which will be adopted later this year. According to the consultation website, the social economy is the part of the economy “driven primarily by collective interests and social and environmental objectives”.
The initiative aims to boost the contribution of social economy organisations to fair and sustainable growth. It will boost social investment, and stimulate social economy actors to become active, to grow, to get innovate and create jobs.
The European Commission and Social Economy Europe encourage the social economy community – networks, representative organisations, entrepreneurs, members of social economy enterprises, promotional bodies, researchers, public authorities involved in social economy policies, etc. – to actively participate in this roadmap on the future of EU policies for the social economy. Proposals can also be made in any of the 24 official EU languages.
