Economic crisis



The European Union cares about the development of social enterprises, because they:

  • are a source of a long term employment,
  • can be a model of innovative solution to local problems,
  • strengthen the social capital (the spirit of community),
  • can be an action supported with the EU Structural Funds,
  • are a form of education, creation and support of local entrepreneurship.
