Roundtable Discussion: Enabling Philanthropic Action for Social Economy and the Public Good

26 May 2021, 11:30-13:00 (CET)

We welcome you to join the roundtable during the European Social Economy Summit (#EUSES) on 26 May 2021 to explore with key European policymakers, researchers as well as representatives from the foundation and wider NPO sector, how the EU Institutions can help unlock the potential of foundations and other social economy actors to contribute as a partner to a socially, environmentally and economically resilient Europe.

Foundations and philanthropic organisations play a key role in the European social economy sector as funders and investors as well as social economy actors in their own right. In this session, we will discuss the question of how foundations and philanthropic organisations can contribute to the European societies and economies, social inclusion as well as green and digital transitions and what barriers still exist that hinder cross-border philanthropy and investments for social good and how they could be overcome.
