Unlocking the potential of the Social Economy for EU growth: The Rome Strategy

Based on the outcomes of the discussions held in the context of the conference "Unlocking the potential of the Social Economy for EU growth", the Italian presidency issued the "Rome strategy" (see attachment below). The paper underlines once again the crucial role social economy plays, at local and European level, in stimulating sustainable growth, promoting inclusion and welfare, creating partnerships etc. It proposes concrete actions to take by EU policy-makers (in particular also the new European Commission and the European Parliament), national policy-makers and the social economy as such.

The conference was attended by more than 800 persons representing social economy operators, representative platforms of the social economy, public authorities, EU policy-makers and administration, academics, other civil society organisations and more.
