Social and Solidarity Economy is an emerging sector in Romania. In the last years, more initiatives were developed in area of services, food and agriculture. There is a Romanian law of social economy, but also many challenges that need to keep in mind. We plan to organize an event to analyze together with other actors how we can share resources and expertise in order to increase the impact of our actions regarding public policy but also the awareness of citizens and their role in order to sustain this sector, Mihaela Vețan, CRIES president.
The event is organized in partnership with RIPESS Europe.
