The role of WISEs in the circular economy

Open to public

In the framework of the Circular Economy Week, ENSIE and RREUSE are organising an event on “The Role of WISEs in circular economy”. The aim of this webinar is to highlight the decades-long contribution of work integration social enterprises (WISEs) in the promotion of an inclusive circular economy. It will take place on October 4th from 11 am to 1 pm.

Speakers from various European countries will share their good practices and expertise in a series of presentations about their social innovations for an inclusive circular transition and the EU policies supporting WISEs and other social economy actors.

The session will open with a presentation from Julie Rijpens (OECD) on the Policy brief on making the most of the social economy's contribution to the circular economy.

Afterward, representatives from Ateliere Fara Frontiere and Kierratyskeskus will respectively present on the role of digital skills and tools, while representatives from Arcobaleno and De Kringwinkel will focus on funding opportunities (socially responsible public procurement and collaboration with the private sector) for social enterprises. Time will be set aside to encourage discussion with the public in separate Zoom breakout sessions.


Le rôle des ESI dans l'économie circulaire

Dans le cadre de la semaine européenne de l'économie circulaire, ENSIE et RREUSE organisent un évènement sur "Le rôle des ESI dans l'économie circulaire". L'objectif de ce webinaire est de mettre en avant la contribution de longue date des entreprises sociales d'insertion à la promotion d'une économie circulaire plus inclusive. Le webinaire prendra place le 4 octobre de 11h à 13h.

Des intervenants de divers pays européens partagerons les bonnes pratiques et leur expertice dans une série de présentation à propos des innovations sociales pour une transition circulaire et inclusive et pour des politiques de l'UE soutenant les ESI et les autres acteurs de l'économie sociale. 

La session s'ouvrira avec une présentation de Julie Rijpens (OECD) sur la Note d'orientation sur la manière de tirer le meilleur parti de la contribution de l'économie sociale à l'économie circulaire.

Ensuite, des représentants d'Ateliere Fara Frontiere et de Kierratyskeskus aborderont la question des compétences numériques et des outils numériques, alors que des représentants d' Arcobaleno et de De Kringwinkel  se concentreront sur la question des opportunités de financements (marchés publics socialement responsables et collaboration avec le secteur public) pour les entreprises sociales. Un long moment dédié aux échanges dans des salles séparées est prévu sur Zoom pour encourager les discussions.
