Inspiration, innovation and inclusion: Shaping our future with  the social and solidarity economy

Session 11: Shaping our future: A youth call to action

Mar 21, 2023 | 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM



(EN/FR) Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. They imagine futures that are more prosperous, more equitable and more resilient. They advocate for social change, innovation and inclusiveness on a regular basis, and aspire to participate in activities and jobs that have social impact. Yet, they are often the first hit in times of crisis and economic downturns. The social economy can engage youth, including by fostering social cohesion and offering meaningful employment. In this closing session youth representatives will discuss the needs of young people and the next generation, what they expect from policy makers and how the social economy and social innovation can help get us there. It is followed by closing remarks from CFE and the EC’s Foreign Policy Instruments
