In this Presntation we look at social enterprise as one means of providing both business and social value opportunities to groups and segments of the population that are either often overlooked or in some way marginalized.
This presentation looks at how social entrepreneurship could provide a form of transition or an alternative to retirement, providing an alternative or ‘middle way’ between ‘mainstream’ entrepreneurship and voluntary work. At the same time, older people’s involvement in social entrepreneurial activity could make a contribution to tackling issues of an ageing society, such as social exclusion
This presentation is based on a study that aimed at examining these trends in more depth and also explored what older people gain through their social entrepreneurial activities.
Bianca Stumbitz from Middlesex University will present this Webinar and place it in the perspective of not only the social enterprise movement itself but also other initiatives relating to employment, social value and overall policy on equality.
