Interactive Forum 5: Building a Democratic Economy: The vital role of social enterprise

14:00-14.50, The Newmart

The economic system is failing to deliver for everyone. How can we build an economic system that works for all of us? What role can and should social enterprises play? What does a fair and prosperous society look like? What new models of productive business should we encourage? How can we all have a role in shaping local, green and inclusive economies? Think about the bigger picture and where social enterprise fits in to a changing world.
