Together with the City of Kiel, Connective Cities hereby invites municipal experts to the international dialogue event Social entrepreneurship – An area for local business development? What potential does this hold for municipalities, and how can they promote social entrepreneurship? The conference will take place online on 20, 21 and 23 September 2021.

The event is designed for German and international actors from municipalities and local business development institutions who are involved in developing strategies to link local business development issues with sustainability goals.

This Connective Cities event will set out to facilitate an international dialogue that compares regional and municipal approaches and solutions for managing social entrepreneurship projects in urban and regional development contexts.

Key themes of the conference

To facilitate discussion of the broad field of social entrepreneurship on a practical level, the Connective Cities dialogue event will focus on three specific aspects:

  • Define social entrepreneurship in the municipal context (e.g. as distinct from other social enterprises)
  • Seek methods and indicators to measure potential effects of social entrepreneurship at the local level
  • Promote enabling local environments to develop social entrepreneurship at the local level

Language of the event is English.
