Study Visit – Social Economy 3.0

Study Visit

7-11 November 2022 | North of Portugal, Portugal

The main aim of the study visit is to learn more about Social Economy and Youth Work in North Macedonia and Portugal, as well as sharing good practices and networking.

The Role of Youth Organizations is clear when the concept of conventional Social Economy is discussed. Known as the ‘social economy’, it includes cooperatives, mutual societies, non-profit associations, foundations and now social enterprises, a new reality, a new practice inside the Social Economy spectrum.

The primary objective of the traditional social economy enterprises is to serve the members and not to obtain a return on investment as the traditional mainstream capital companies do. The members act in accordance with the principle of solidarity and mutuality and manage their enterprise on the basis of 'one man one vote' principle.

The new Social Enterprises are bringing new cards to the table, investment, equity, social innovation, and they operate a very broad number of commercial activities, provide a wide range of products and services across the European single market and generating new of jobs.

From Social Economy 1.0 to 2.0 and expecting to understand the Social Economy of tomorrow and the role of Youth and Erasmus+ in it, be welcome to the Social Economy 3.0 Study Visit.
