Based on the initiative  from the Euclid Network, The European Commission is putting the social economy (including social enterprises) high on the agenda.

Last Friday (24 of April, 2020), the European Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights Nicolas Schmit has written a letter to all the European Ministers of Labour calling on them to support the social economy (including social enterprises) during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We are pleased to see that our Commissioner has taken over most of the recommendations that Euclid Network and other European networks have put forward.

In this turbulent times, hopefully that social economy will be properly supported and will provide important insight as a role model in challenging situations.
