European Summit on Social Economy 2020

Published on: 04/02/2020

The European Commission and the City of Mannheim will jointly hold a European Summit on Social Economy on 26 -27 November 2020.

Event date: 26/11/2020 to 27/11/2020

The  summit focuses on strengthening the social economy in Europe and harnessing its contribution to economic development, social inclusion as well as green and digital transitions. This will be discussed from three perspectives

  • 1. 
    digitalisation of the social economy
  • 2. 
    (social) innovation
  • 3. 
    cross-country and cross-sectoral collaboration

The event will take place during the EU Council Presidency of Germany. It will bring together various stakeholders active in the social economy. It aims to further develop social economy networks in the EU, foster exchange, present best practices, and identify 'lessons learned' for the sector. It will be an important milestone towards a 'European Action Plan for Social Economy', which the European Commission intends to launch in 2021.

The summit will bring together public and private stakeholders, civil society and scholars. We aim to discuss the future, network, inform and increase the visibility of the social economy and social enterprise policies by exchanging good practices, success stories and increasing peer learning.

The programme will be co-created by the City of Mannheim, the European Commission and by stakeholders, across the two days.

More than 1500 participants are expected to join and create a dynamic environment for discussions and various exchanges.
