The Hague, 23 March 2022 – We are inviting submissions to tender to provide logistical support to Euclid Network in the preparation and implementation of a multi-day event in the framework of the MedUP! project in Tunisia. Please submit your PDF proposal here by 1 April 2022, 23:59 CEST.
Euclid Network & MedUP! Project
Euclid Network (EN) features a long history working with social enterprise support organisations and civil society leaders to promote social entrepreneurship. With this expertise we joined the MedUP! project which seeks to promote social entrepreneurship in six countries in the MENA region.
Social enterprises are increasingly becoming important drivers for inclusive growth and play a key role in tackling current economic and environmental challenges. They create jobs in a sustainable manner, mostly locally. Moreover, social enterprises often have a strong focus on social innovation and respond to needs that are otherwise not met, or not met in an optimal manner by public authorities and/or market players.
The MedUP! project, led by OXFAM Italy, seeks to harness that potential by working with a diverse consortium on the Macro-, Meso-, and Micro-Level to promote an enabling environment in the Southern Mediterranean partner countries for the development of the social entrepreneurship sector as a driver for inclusive growth and job creation. Specifically, the goal is to increase economic inclusiveness and employment in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine where adequate policies on social entrepreneurship are in place, public-private dialogue and exchanges of practices are promoted and high quality services for social enterprises are provided.
Euclid Network, as one of the MedUP!’s technical advisors, is tasked with the organisation and implementation of a multi-day event in Tunisia to facilitate collaborations between key stakeholders of the social enterprise ecosystems in the six partner countries and Europe.
Logistical and Programmatic Support for Euclid Network’s MENA Event (before and during the event)
The event is planned to take place in mid- to end-May (preferably 15-19 May). Its objective is to bring together a diverse group of key stakeholders of the social enterprise ecosystems in the MENA region and beyond.
During the 3-4 days, the approximately 50 participants (mainly representatives of social enterprise support organizations) will be granted the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of workshops, master classes and brainstorming sessions, as well as (outdoor) community-building activities. In addition to that, Euclid Network envisions to create a safe space for discussions and to create meaningful connections between the participants.
