Artisans and farmers will share their views via video about how social enterprises have bridged the inequality gap in various areas such as gender, skills, education, health and safety, and financial inclusion. Representatives from the EU, the International Trade Centre, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation and the British Council will discuss the challenges and opportunities offered by this innovative approach. The goals are to promote, encourage, and make social change happen, while addressing gender, skills acquisition, health and safety at work, financial inclusion and all of the relevant factors linked to the decent jobs agenda. Participants will also address the spirit of inclusiveness of the social enterprises and will analyse how to ensure their market access at a larger scale.
