As a result of our collection of best practices from Social Economy and civil society in the fight against the Corona virus, we have shared in several thematic on-line sessions their initiatives (March-May).

A second step will be to share the response of governments at several levels (member state, region and city) in a dedicated session. The approach will by dual:

1) Policy response

2) Recovery

This session is organised with the "ESER community" (participants from 2018, 2019 and 2020) and will be made open for wider audience. The European Social Economy Regions projects make regional and local social economies visible by supporting them in organising awareness-raising events where stakeholders can build active networks, share expertise, develop policy advice and gain cross-European social economy knowledge. This is first out of five thematic ESER 2020 virtual sessions that will be organised between June-September 2020

The meeting format is classic: 15-25 min presentation 10-15 min Q&A and discussion.
