Thriving community enterprise ecosystems (SEWF)

Community social enterprises play a pivotal role in strong, resilient and social neighborhoods. The ‘commons-movement’ is in a lift in the Netherlands, especially when we look at entrepreneurial cooperatives. At the same time, the Dutch ecosystem can a lot from other (European) countries. In particular the Scottish ecosystem is a good example. We invite community entrepreneurs, policy makers and intermediaries from Scotland, the Netherlands and other countries to participate in a discussion on how to build a thriving community enterprise ecosystem.
