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. One of the key results is the emergence of a new social entrepreneurship sector which is taking root throughout Europe.

The European Commission, as a key policy maker for Europe, launched the Social Business Initiative (SBI) on 25 October 2011. Its objective is to illuminate and stimulate the action and innovation that is already taking place and to support it, through a favorable eco-system, to move forward by connecting policy makers, social entrepreneurs, citizens and investors.

Have Your Say! is a 2-day event in Strasbourg on 16–17 January 2014 that will bring together all the stakeholders to discuss the issues we face. This is a great opportunity for all those interested in the field to come together, ”united in diversity“, to co-create a coherent pathway and continue building a healthy and vibrant social entrepreneurship sector right across Europe.
