SKI.F.T. project, supporting micro and small European social economy enterprises in green transition

SKI.F.T. – from the Danish word for “change” – is the title of a new transnational initiative which has the objective to accompany micro and small social economy enterprises in their efforts to make their business model and related practices more environmentally sustainable.

The project, launched in October 2023, is co-funded by the EU SMP-COSME programme. It brings together social economy intermediary organisations and training providers from Denmark, Poland and Italy, as well as two European networks: Kooperationen (DK), FISE (PL), COESI (IT), Demetra Formazione (IT), Legacoop Emilia-Romagna (IT), REVES aisbl and CECOP.

Through SKI.F.T. project partners will provide specific advisory and coaching services to micro and small social economy enterprises, enabling the latter to review their business model towards stronger environmental sustainability. Moreover, beneficiary enterprises will have the opportunity to receive direct financial support to purchase additional coaching and mentoring responding to their specific needs and fields of interest (e.g. creation of local social green value chains, communication, use of digital tools to facilitate certain type of processes, etc.). Specific attention will be paid to a collective approach, which will encourage stronger cooperation between micro and small social economy enterprises as such as well as between the latter and their different partners and stakeholders.

The first transnational meeting, organized by project leader Kooperationen and held on 5 and 6 December 2023 in Copenhagen, provided an opportunity for the project consortium to set the frame for the upcoming activities. Discussions focused in particular on the specific needs of micro and small social economy enterprises as well as on the construction of a common methodologies partners would be able to use as a support and point of departure for advisory and coaching services.

A main objective and challenge of the SKI.F.T. consortium for the months to come is thus to develop a training offer which would be most closely related to the running activities of the target enterprises, take the aforementioned challenges into account and be tailor-made to the specific needs of the enterprise.
