Transfer of Innovative Practices for Enhancing the Social Impact from the Activity of Social Entrepreneurs
Reach for Change Sweden is partnering with Reach for Change Bulgaria in the implementation of Project "Transfer of Innovative Practices for Enhancing the Social Impact from the Activity of Social Entrepreneurs" funded by OP Human Resources Development’ 2014-2020, co-financed by the EU through the European Social Fund.
The goal of the project is to adapt and transfer to the Bulgarian context social innovations which support the development and scaling of social entrepreneurs. As part of the project 10 Bulgarian social entrepreneurs will travel to Stockholm to exchange experience with Reach for Change Sweden and to meet Swedish social entrepreneurs. Adapting and transferring the methodology of Reach for Change Sweden, the Bulgarian team of Reach for Change will organise trainings and consultations for the Bulgarian social entrepreneurs.
As a conclusion of the project in November 2018 Reach for Change Bulgaria will organise the international conference Partnering for Change. It will bring together over 40 high-level representatives of European business, public institutions and social innovators to discuss the best ways of unleashing the power of
entrepreneurship and innovation to create a better world for children and youth.
Partnering for Change Conference in Sofia is a follow up of Partnering for Change events in Stockholm (Sweden), Zagreb (Croatia) and Astana (Kazakhstan) organized by Reach for Change. This series of events share the philosophy behind the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 17: A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society.
