Home affairs, Migration and Integration
Date: Tuesday, 06 December 2016 09:00

Venue: EESC  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

In line with the Europe 2020 strategyand the European Vocational Skills Week, DIESIS - European research and development service for Social Economy and Social Enterprise - is organising next 6th of December in Brussels the conference: “Social entrepreneurship in training and education and an opportunity for people with a migrant background”.

  

DIESIS has supported the development of the Social Economy and Social Entrepreneurship in Europe since 1997, through the implementation of knowledge-based activities, such as training, project design, consultancy and advisory services, technical assistance and research.

We are aware of the relevance of education and training in Social Economy and Entrepreneurship development. That’s why with some of you we are already implementing projects based on the definition of competences and the recognition of ECVET credit system.

EU level VET projects defining new sets of competences for Social Entrepreneurs through the ECVET System, concrete and ground-breaking initiatives from public and private sector involving social enterprises will be on display and shared with EU Institutions representatives and other stakeholders.

In this context we would like to explore during the round table “Breaking barriers to migrants' entrepreneurship and employment – social business and enterprises as factor of success?” the role that the Social Entrepreneurship may have as tool for the migrants’ social and economic inclusion.

Due to the limited number of places and for security reasons we kindly ask you to register to the event by filling in the form HERE

Venue of the event: EESC - EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMITTEE, 100 Rue Belliard – Brussels

SENINTER is not just a trip, it is a legacy!

Under the name of SENINTER, several organizations from Slovenia, Italy, Belgium and Spain, are working together on this project financed by the European Commission.

But, what is SENINTER?

 

It is a reaction to the main problems of the tourism industry: saturated destinations, the need to deseasonalize the offer; and also a reaction to the most negative effects of tourism: loss of cultural identity, overuse of resources, destruction of the environment, benefits not perceived by the local population, and many more.

This led to the creation of SENINTER, a proposal for a profound change in the current tourism model, turning negative effects into positive ones. With three very interesting ingredients: grandchildren, grandparents and local population, and the background of the European Union and its cultures.

SENINTER proposes the creation of a slow and sustainable tourism product, adapted to senior citizens who travel across Europe with their grandchildren during medium and low seasons.

Personal and household services have become one of the most important topic in the EC social Agenda.  This sector covers a broad range of activities that contribute to well-being at home of families and individuals: child care, long term care for the elderly and for persons with disabilities, cleaning, remedial classes, home repairs, gardening, ICT support, etc  

DIESIS, for 20 years at the centre of Social Economy in Europe, is aware of its importance and will discuss this subject on the morning of the 21st of April (9-13) in Brussels (Venue: the European Economic and Social Committee, room JD60) in the context of the final workshop of the BESPAT project, with members of the Institutions and representatives of the most important European networks. BESPAT (Best European Policies, Analysis and Transference in PHS) is a PROGRESS project aiming at identifying and exchanging Good Practices all over Europe regarding the policies and actions in the sector of Personal and Household Services.

BESPAT (Best European Policies, Analysis and Transference in PHS) is a Progress project whose aim is to identify and exchange Good Practices all over Europe regarding the policies and actions in the sector of Personal and Household Services as a way to define a Policies and Actions Proposal to encourage the quality and the efficiency of these services and to contribute through the creation of new jobs to the objectives of European 2020 Strategy.  The project foresees the realisation of two products: The Guide of Good practices under the responsibility of DIESIS and the PHS Research and Proposals Guide under the responsibility of CONFESAL.
The project enjoys a very committed partnership composed by representatives of the Social Economy, networks of Local Authorities and Regional authorities and non-governmental organizations: CONFESAL (Confederación Empresarial de Sociedades Laborales de España), DIESIS (European Research and Development Service for the Social Economy), ALDA (Association of Local Democracy Agencies), Scuola Nazionale Servizi, REVES (European Network of Cities & Regions for the Social Economy).

The aim of this document is to present and describe the good practices in the PHS sector identified by the BESPAT Partnership.
Good practices may be defined as experiences that:

  • solve a problem or responds to a social demand;
  • use innovative methods or mechanisms;
  • see participation and empowerment of the different players;
  • achieve demonstrable results superior to those of other experiences;
  • last over time;
  • capable of being replicated by other organizations.

Good practices can be carried out by public entities at a national, regional or local level, or else by other players and sector stakeholders: suppliers, business associations, non-governmental organizations, etc.

The process of identification followed by the BESPAT partnership is based on qualitative criteria and focused on facts and figures enabling identification of whether the practices produce positive results, whether can be sustained over time and whether they show a trend towards continuous improvement.
In particular, the analysis has been based on the following criteria:

  • Foundation
  • Relevance
  • Consistency
  • Maturity
  • Empowerment of players
  • Evaluation and monitoring
  • Transferability
  • Sustainability
  • Innovation
  • Impact on gender equality

Those qualitative criteria are enriched by two quantitative elements that will be also helpful in the analysis, in particular:

  • Resources Assignedv
  • Impacts

PROEFP is a network of organisations representing different typologies of interest: business, labour, social economy, academics and research, consultancy and advocacy. They all share a common idea: economic democracy can make the European free market a more democratic space.

PROEFP led out in 2010 on the initiative of a set of organisations that joined the project the Information and Communication: Promoting Employee Financial Participation in the EU27, co-financed by the European Commission, ended in year 2011.

Today the PROEFP network studies, promotes, encourages all forms of employee financial participation and a larger diffusion of share/equity ownership among employees.
