The European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the City of Strasbourg will host a large European event on social entrepreneurship and the social economy. 
This two-day event will use a collaborative, participatory approach. The participants themselves will drive the issues to be debated and identify together the way forward for the social entrepreneurship sector.
 
Top speakers will include: Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and Henri Malosse, President of the European Economic and Social Committee. Three European Commissioners - Vice-President Antonio Tajani and Commissioners Barnier and Andor - will enter into live discussions with social entrepreneurs.
 
Europe is changing and new economic models are needed. European citizens, business, entrepreneurs and policy makers are taking action on the challenges we are facing in our social, economic and environmental spheres, through social innovation, new forms of investment and surprising solutions.

The social economy is an important pillar of the European economy, representing some 10% of GDP. More than 11 million workers or 4.5 % of the active EU population are employed in the social economy. 

1 in every 4 new businesses set up each year is a social business, rising to 1 in 3 in France, Finland and Belgium. 

Participants include social entrepreneurs, academics, policy makers, financing providers, social activists and many, many more.
