Be part of SEWF22 through a Community Hub!

Can’t join SEWF22 in person but missing in-person connection, discussion and networking? Why not host or join an SEWF22 Community Hub to build local connections and community?

Through SEWF Community Hubs, social enterprises and entrepreneurs can engage with SEWF22 content, network, share ideas and opportunities with each other locally. More information coming soon!

"I'm excited by the Community Hub model because it can be very difficult - if not impossible - for rural social entrepreneurs to find the resources and time needed to travel to international conferences. So a model like this is great, because it affordably combines the benefits of face-to-face interaction with peers from a given region, with the expansive learning that comes from engaging with others on a global level".
Pete, SEWF 2021 Community Hub host (Australia)
“It was very valuable to come together with the stakeholders in the ecosystem after a long time, discuss social entrepreneurship from different aspects and feel the hope again that the power of being a community provides”.
Sinem Gökçe, Community Hub Host (Turkey)
