The European Social Economy Awards 2023

The European Social Economy Awards 2023

In post crisis times, we reinvent ourselves: COVID 19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have brought lots of challenges, but also have shown us the weaknesses of the current system with a trend to relocation in which cooperation and proximity can be key. We need to build a different Europe, one that is people-centred, sustainable, eco-friendly and fair, and each part of society should work for that. The social economy has the capacity to address all these changes and the EU has already recognised it as the proximity and social economy have been chosen as one of the 14 industrial ecosystems in the European Industrial Strategy, which is going to be the foundations of a new Europe. In order to work for that, we can count on the Social Economy Action Plan and the Transition Pathways, which show us the road to move on to a digital and green system. On these Awards, we want to specially recognise your efforts and contributions for this transition.

The Awards, replicated every two years, serve as inspiration to other social economy actors, and citizens aiming at becoming entrepreneurs, activists and change-makers. Also, they aim at raising the visibility of the social economy, in order to continue putting on the public agenda our needs and potential.

This year, these prestigious Social Economy Awards will have four categories:

For those organisations which work towards the following topics: Inclusion of vulnerable or marginalised individuals, such as migrants, or other minorities far from the labour market; accessibility and inclusion of people with disabilities; gender equality; LGTBI Rights; youth social entrepreneurship and inclusion of young people in the labour market; innovative social services, including innovation in care services; other solutions to social issues.
In the European Year of Skills, this category aims to award organisations working on upskilling and reskilling social economy employees, potential entrepreneurs, students etc. and/or on the development of training and courses related to social economy, such as educational cooperatives, VET cooperative centres, universities, etc.
For organisations working on renewable energy, housing, sustainable mobility, the circular economy, water management, sustainable food production among many others and/or in the action areas of the Green Transition of the Transition Pathway for the proximity and social economy ecosystem.

For social economy initiatives operating in the digital economy or with an important focus on technological innovation and/or working in the action areas of the Digital Transition of the Transition Pathway for the proximity and social economy ecosystem.
