If we look at the agendas of our political parties, we realise that practically no one has mentioned social entrepreneurship
and social innovation
. The European Union along with various international institutions has stressed time and time again the importance of promoting apparatus such as these, yet in Spain it is hardly even addressed; its reach is basically limited to the regional level, as in the paradigmatic case of the Basque Country. As social problems mount ever higher and the youth unemployment rate
remains one of the highest in Europe, political stimulation of social innovation and social entrepreneurship have become pressing issues.
In light of this situation, in 2014, Red CreActiva
organised four Political and Social Advocacy Summits
, and Valencia
, and we now bring you the conclusions.
