Engaging in social entrepreneurship means using traditional methods of producing goods and services to achieve a social mission of transforming precarious situations. Many companies do it without knowing it.
Social enterprises are a tool for creativity to serve communities (neighborhoods, municipalities, associations).
- They stem from the needs identified on the ground.
- They become collective projects that bring together and value everyone's resources.
- They become sustainable as innovative solutions and find their place in the social and economic fabric.
For several years now, in collaboration with international partners, the School of Social Work Fribourg has been taking a close interest in this phenomenon, which lies at the very heart of the definition of social work. This international conference on social entrepreneurship aims to promote this new professional intervention posture.
This international conference intended for a broad audience: students, politicians, academics, but also, and above all, social entrepreneurs.
