Eurodiaconia has published a briefing for members on the role of social entrepreneurship for youth inclusion and as a lever for youth unemployment in Europe. The briefing aims at equipping Eurodiaconia members with background information on the value of social entrepreneurship and its potential to tackle unemployment especially among young people. It highlights social enterprises as a scene for developing and applying social innovation and how European funding can support the set-up and development of social enterprises. To conclude, the briefing will present four examples from Eurodiaconia members, who successfully run social enterprises and related projects in Italy, the United Kingdom, Czech Republic and Finland.
