This year's Social Enterprise World Forum to be held in Milan in July

The 8th Annual Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF2015) will be held in Milan this year between the 1st and the 3rd of July.

The SEWF2015 will take place alongside the World Expo and will bring together the most highly regarded voices in the field of social entrepreneurship, social enterprise and sustainable development, including Professor Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank and former Nobel peace prize winner.

The 2015 Social Enterprise World Forum will be a three day event, offering a number of plenaries and over 40 workshops on the role of business in meeting pressing social and environmental challenges. It will bring to Milan more than 1,000 delegates and over 100 speakers from all over the world.

The central theme of the 2015 Forum will be: growing a new economy.

As always, the entire event will be practitioner led and participative with attendees and speakers from over 50 countries.

Alongside the Social Enterprise World Forum conference there will be opportunities for delegates to attend a variety of study tours (ranging from 1 to 3 days) visiting some of Italy’s most exciting social enterprises and social cooperatives. The delegates will also have the unique chance to witness a technical rehearsal of the Othello, a four act opera of Giuseppe Verdi, at La Scala one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world.
