“Towards Collaborative Practice” (TCP) Study Visit on Social Entrepreneurship and Social Inclusion

Study Visit

22-26 November 2021 | Budapest, Hungary

A great opportunity to discover, connect to successful initiatives, and learn more about social entrepreneurship and youth work in Hungary, as well as about how the European Solidarity Corps can support social entrepreneurship among young people.

Please note:

This project was planned for 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation the activity had to be postponed. Applicants who submitted their application forms earlier will be considered and their availability will be confirmed via e-mail. 

Join us, reflect, network & learn about professional practices and ways in which social entrepreneurship and youth work can be developed and apply these experiences to your reality. This study visit is a unique opportunity to discover more about being a social entrepreneur in Hungary and how youth work plays a role in it. 

The study visit is organized in the framework of the “Towards Collaborative Practice” (TCP) project that explores the potential of youth work, Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps to foster social entrepreneurship and social innovation among young people. The TCP Project consists of forums and study visits, and so far 5 Forums and 2 Study Visits have been organized.  This one will be the third one, following on from the ones in Bristol UK (2016) and Jerusalem Israel (2018). 

Budapest hosts a unique and vibrant community of social entrepreneurs working for the betterment of society and the environment. This event will provide the opportunity to a group of professionals and young people to discover the social business sector in Budapest and Hungary through direct contacts and exchanges with several social enterprises. It will be funded through the NET budget line of the European Solidarity Corps. It will be a combination of field visits with sessions focused on networking and knowledge/practice sharing. The project will explore the social and environmental impact of social ventures, with a special focus on the social inclusion of underrepresented and vulnerable groups. The event will also tackle the connection between social entrepreneurship and the European Solidarity Corps, as well as volunteering and its importance for social inclusion and employability. 

This activity will focus on environmental consciousness in social entrepreneurship. The whole event is influenced by its theme, environmental awareness - including site selection, menu compilation, coffee breaks and the materials we use. We believe it is important to show that there is always an opportunity to select an environmentally friendly option.

This study visit will:

  • explore, through several field visits, how social enterprises can become established as promoters of innovation and growth for society;
  • facilitate partnerships, creating a network of social entrepreneurs;
  • share practices and realities among the diverse social and youth entrepreneurs from Europe, neighboring Partner Regions, and Hungary;
  • and mapping the impact of COVID19 pandemia in the sustainability of social entrepreneurship.

If you are willing to join and passionate about the topics of the study visit i.e. social entrepreneurship, social innovation, and social inclusion, we kindly invite you to express your interest to join this event.
