What is going on in the Baltic countries regarding social enterprise ecosystem? What kind of issues we all share and what practical actions could be taken to tackle them?
These were the questions to explore in Tallinn in mid-May. Impactful social enterprises – difficult questions, practical solutions event was organised by Jaan Aps from Estonian Social Enterprise Network. The event was a dissemination event of a EU-funded progamme, mapping the social enterprise support ecosystems in Baltics and Scandinavia.

All in all, we were happy to discuss different views on the social enterprise sector and its development. All societies are a bit different in some aspects, but very similar in others. We got to know many people, with whom to collaborate in the future.
