Ens han convidat a presentar EcoRegió com eina per enfortir nous ecosistemes de distribució i crear llocs de treball.
El 29 de juny al Museu d’Història Natural de Brusel·les, organitzat per Ashoka, el suport de la Fundació Robert Bosch, i el Parlament Europeu.
THIS WORKS Summit will provide European and national policy makers, as well as social investors and philanthropists a unique opportunity to meet 10 outstanding social innovators and their partners and discuss how the programmes they developed could be transferred and applied elsewhere in Europe to scale their social impact.
The Summit is part of THIS WORKS initiative launched in 2014 by Ashoka and the Robert Bosch Stiftung from the conviction that focusing on opportunities and existing innovative proven solutions instead of problems is one of the keys to putting an end to the employment crisis in Southern Europe.
The event is an excellent platform for policy makers, philanthropists and social investors to
- Meet 10 outstanding social innovators and discover their solutions for challenges connected to employment, migration, skills mismatch, youth empowerment…
- Discuss how policy makers and philanthropic actors could contribute to transferring these solutions elsewhere and scaling their impact through innovative EU employment and entrepreneurship policies
- Learn from what worked and what didn’t work in scaling innovations across Europe
- Stimulate collaborations and new partnerships across Europe and beyond sectors.
Come to discover innovations like, THE BEEHIVE THAT SAYS YES, from France to Spain and Italy, or ECOREGIO -INSPIRED BY REGIONALWERT AG
FROM GERMANY TO SPAIN. Through a simple market mechanism, a legal holding company with publicly available shares, Ashoka Fellow Christian Hiss has created an accessible financial investment opportunity that is changing the structure of the agriculture sector.
In addition to buying small farms with social and environmental impacts, Regionalwert also invests in wholesalers and organic catering firms generating better financial, social and environmental returns. To date, Regionalwert has 750 investors and a capital of € 4.2 million, supporting 20 companies with more
than 150 workers.
In Spain, a local team led by Oriol Costa (DynamisLab) set up Ecoregio in September 2015.
EcoRegio has already raised a capital of €60,000 and selected three projects to conduct trainings with them, feasibility studies, and raise investments to start operations.
