Common Cents 2012: Social Business - The Opportunities
Wednesday, 28 March 2012
EU Parliament Offices, Dublin 2
Clann Credo's Annual Conference, Common Cents 2012 will bring together speakers with a wealth of knowledge and experience in addressing social issues through social enterprise and community business.
This is a time of opportunity for social businesses. The unique potential of social enterprises and community businesses to promote growth, create jobs and address disadvantage is being harnessed throughout Europe.
Learn about the European Commission’s new Social Business Initiative. Should Ireland set up a Social Innovation Fund? Can we measure success?
How can community and voluntary groups, social enterprises and community businesses tap into these opportunities?
This conference will marry theory with practice by bringing together individuals with hands-on experience, policy-makers and experts.
Eamon Gilmore TD, Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade will open the conference.
