With this online event we aim at disseminating some of the best practices in the field of social entrepreneurship we encountered during the meetings of the SEYW project, as well as other interesting tools that can be useful to be adapted in other. The conference wants to give an overview of existing activities in the 6 countries that are part of the project and how they coped with the COVID19 situation, and provide inspiration for new actions in the fields of social entrepreneurship and youth work.
