In order to answer these questions, NESsT has organised the third Social Enterprise Day in Hungary in conjunction with the National Public Employment Office on 15 June – The full agenda is available here.
“We believe that social enterprises create jobs where most needed and are able to provide a sustainable solution to critical social problems, even in uncertain economic times. That is why social enterprises are essential players in the post-crisis economy.”
There is also a workshop organised by DemNet Hungary on 13 June focusing on social impact and social innovation regarding financing social purpose activities, taking place in Budapest, Hungary. This workshop is part of the Social Innovation Park that is supported by Euclid Network. Full details are available here.

The European Commission published recently the 2013 Citizenship Report, an action plan which seeks to improve the everyday lives of all 500 million EU Citizens as well as removing obstacles that stop EU citizens from exercising their rights as established under the various EU treaties. The 2013 Report puts forward 12 new actions in 6 key areas to remove these obstacles to citizens’ rights and follows the 2010 Citizenship Report (a full list of the actions taken by the Commission following the 2010 Report can be viewed here).
The 2013 Report aims to address the circumstances where citizens encounter problems in accessing fully their rights. It is the end result of a wide reaching consultation with citizens as well as civil society and political groups representing the entirety of European society. 12,000 citizens participated in the project and the main result of this consultation can be found here.
