This year we travel – albeit virtually – to Nova Scotia, Canada, where we have partnered with Common Good Solutions as 2021 Co-host to shine a spotlight on Canada, while also addressing priorities and issues for social enterprises around the world. Key themes will include climate change, young people, social procurement, economic recovery and indigenous social enterprise.
All SEWF events in 2021 will be virtual with French interpretation.
