EMN & FEBEA Title: Social Finance in Europe: a strong leverage towards an inclusive and green Europe

Many European citizens ask for a more sustainable and inclusive growth. Social finance can be a response to this demand by funding the social economy. Shedding light on different practices in several European countries, this workshop aims at giving concrete examples on how social finance can ensure transparency for savers, create more jobs for deprived people and develop additional social impact.


By ensuring transparency for savers, creating jobs for deprived people and developing additional social impact, social finance serves the transition and allows citizens to take back the control on finance. The different practices coexisting in European countries bring together civil society, financial players, NGO’s and regulators to achieve implementing social and environmental projects on the ground. The workshop will begin with an introduction giving participants an overview of the different models existing in the broad field of social finance. Participants will then form groups to work on cases deriving from one of the models (ethical finance/microfinance/labels/social financiers). In each group, a moderator will briefly set the scene and introduce various examples, and then moderate discussions between participants on how to replicate best practices and drive further developments. At the end of the session, each group will report to plenary to summarise and share their outcomes.
