During the conference, participants discussed five key challenges, developing and sharing new ideas.
Challenges were defined through an open-call for proposals which was launched on 9 September 2013.
The best ideas were presented to our Panel of Experts – local, national and European – at the end of the day. Concrete recommendations about policy were collected throughout the conference and fed into the EC’s event the following day.
Civil society organisations and social enterprises ‘showcased’ themselves during networking breaks.
We also offered ten social entrepreneurship cafes around Strasbourg, led by our partners & members.
Following the conference, British Council hosted a reception at 17:30 in the foyer of the Conseil Général du Bas-Rhin.
