Offsite Meeting

With increasing turbulence and new game rules on the international stage, people are experiencing snowballing economic and social disturbance. Inflation, exchange rate volatility, the disruption of supply chains and lifestyles are challenging us to find new solutions in both the economy and the social sphere. For several years now, social entrepreneurs have demonstrated their effectiveness in solving social problems and have become significant partners for the authorities in implementing social policies, in particular federal laws 442 and 189. What tools are needed to develop social enterprises? Why is the growth of social impact important? What is the importance of creating new jobs for socially vulnerable categories of the population?
