Currently, facing the main social challenges in terms of health, education, human rights, housing, environment, and gender, requires not only an innovative and sustainable vision of development, but also a practical and entrepreneurial approach.
The Social Entrepreneur tackles economic and social challenges in a unique way, beyond sectors of activity. What can we do to help the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in society to be part of the world economy? In this workshop, participants will work in small groups to study practical cases and find innovative solutions.
