An EU4Youth conference on social entrepreneurship and green innovation took place in Tbilisi on 29 October, looking at the legal framework and recommendations for the development of a legal basis for social entrepreneurship in Georgia and Armenia.
The meeting brought together EU4Youth representatives from Brussels, implementing partners, public, civil society and private sector institutions dealing with social and green entrepreneurship, youth policy experts and practitioners, EU4Youth grant holders and related projects.
“For years, the EU has been involved in the promotion and support of social entrepreneurship in the EaP region, providing both financial and expert support,” said Maxim Pijevskii from the EU4Youth Coordination and Support team. The EU is currently funding four projects within the EU4Youth initiative aimed at the development of social and youth entrepreneurship.
The first part of the conference was dedicated to an overview of the main achievements of the project in Georgia and Armenia, as well as the analysis of the legal framework of social entrepreneurship at local and regional levels. The second part was dedicated to discussion about the next steps to popularise the field of social entrepreneurship at the regional level.
