Hackney Co-operative Developments CIC is pleased to present the ‘Social Enterprise in the City’ conference in a partnership led with Hackney Council (for full list of partners see below).
Using Hackney as a case study, the conference will explore how to develop a vibrant urban social enterprise ecosystem in which social enterprises can address inner city challenges such as disengaged youth, social exclusion and food sustainability.
Through a series of talks, panels and breakout sessions this conference will identify key inner city needs, an inner city vision for social enterprise and the steps local actors can take to grow the sector. The day will also include an opportunity to work with the Mayor of Hackney to draft a social enterprise manifesto for Hackney.
Headline speakers include:
