27/11 Next Generation EU: Mobilising social economy’s potential to build back better

The European Social Economy Summit

The 26th and the 27th of November would have been the dates for the original ‘European Social Economy Summit’ and to commemorate this, there will be a 2 days online event with over 15 different stakeholder sessions from all over Europe and beyond under the suitable umbrella theme “Recovery strategy for Europe“, with speakers such as European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights Nicolas Schmit

To help repair the economic and social damage brought by the coronavirus pandemic, the European Commission proposed a major recovery plan for Europe, leading the way out of the crisis and laying foundations for a modern and more sustainable Europe. The bulk of the proposed recovery measures will be powered by a new temporary recovery instrument Next Generation EU with financial firepower of €750 billion.
