The overall aim of the event is to show the central role the various social economy models -such as renewable energy coops, social enterprises active in the circular economy, housing coops, short circuits, ethical bank etc.- can play to achieve the objectives of the Green Deal, and connect this reality with Europe’s Recovery Plan (Next Generation EU), ensuring that our enterprises and organisation will also be able to access to strategic investments; as well as to the European Action Plan for the Social Economy, that will be issued on the second semester of 2020, as recently confirmed by the Commission Work Programme 2021 “A Union of vitality in a world of fragility“.
