The Association “Solem”, NGO “Ljubeznost”, “Misla”, “Social Integration Empowerment Centre – SIEC”, and “AHP” Prilep (N.Macedonia) also joined the consortia as Macedonian support partners.
The project contributes to increasing knowledge on Social Entrepreneurship, legal forms of Social Enterprises, financing of Social Enterprises, supporting structures, social clauses in public procurement and building an informal international exchange platform of good practices. This is so that they are able to share ideas and experiences among partners.
Highlights: The second project activity was a Study Visit and Conference, organized in Skopje (October 2019). The 3-days agenda for sharing good practices and knowledge exchange covered one full-day visits to Macedonian SEs, the Municipality of Shuto Orizari (mayor connections) and organization of National Conference. This featured success stories from all the project countries and hosted a panel with participation of prominent experts.
