Why

The diaries are a compilation of stories about the impact of social economy. We launched the idea to show, through your voice, how a resilient, regenerative form of economy is not only possible: it is actually a reality.

Why to participate

Social economy is complex, rich, versatile but not always well understood. Your story shows why it makes sense to think beyond profit and how people of all kind, all over the world, are addressing serious, profound wounds in our planet with  determination, commitment and optimism.

In addition, stories like yours give decision makers and advocates a stronger and louder voice to support a more resilient and sustainable economy.

Finally, with your consent, your story may become featured in our of our posts on social media and/or in the open diaries that we will produce and distribute digitally as part of our policy activities at the European Commission.

Conditions to be featured

Keep it personal & avoid direct promotion! We give preference to stories told from a personal perspective that clearly help to understand the impacts of social economy beyond the achievements of a particular business. Direct promotional pieces will have a very low priority and will not be featured.

What

The Diaries are a collection of experiences by social entrepreneurs, their collaborators and employees, those who support their activities and finally those who benefit from their products and services.

If you decide to contribute, you will be asked to tell a story about your experience in Social Economy. This is the key of the exercise. Then, you will be asked to answer to a set of questions about your story, such as:

  • where did the story happen?
  • what impacts did it create on you?
  • did it address a societal challenge? An environmental one? Both?
  • ...etcetera

Aside from being an inspiration to others, the stories will give insights on the specific needs of this still delicate part of our economy.

A selection of stories will be edited and published as open diaries in a small downloadable booklet that will also be distributed across Europe to policymakers, citizens, opinion leaders and fellow entrepreneurs.

Contribute!

Share your experience!

As a social entrepreneur you know what it means to run a business with purpose. You know about the hard work, the challenges, the rewards, the impact. Share your experience and make it count!

As an employee, your story shows social economy from within. Share your motivation, the good and bad moments, the experience on the job, and make them count!

As a consumer, you see the final results, the products and the services. Share what they mean for you, why you choose them, how you use them and why you think they make a difference.

There is no limit to the number of stories you can tell. If you have time and energy, you can definitely add more than one story!

Writing the story and answering to the questions usually takes from 15 to 20 minutes. Are you ready?
