17 February, 2021

On 17 February 2021, the European Economic and Social Committee organised a conference on the role of the social economy in job creation and the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights. It was attended by representatives of the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., Štefan Simončič and Anja Cehnar.

2021 will be a crucial year for the social economy with the adoption of the first EU Action Plan on the Social Economy. All European institutions are committed to supporting the social economy so that it can strengthen and raise its profile, especially in the light of the fight against the economic and social consequences of the Covid-19 crisis. The social economy has a key role to play in the recovery.

The conference focused on two main issues:

  1. How to strengthen the role of the social economy in a fair and sustainable recovery
  2. What are the main policy priorities to be included in the future Social Economy Action Plan?
