Lead Partner: Nordregio – Nordic Centre for Spatial Development
Please check out Social Green video presentation from our launch event. The video includes a meeting with Social Green Partners and an explanation of the local importance of this project. The proposed project entitled “Regional Policies towards Greening the Social Housing Sector” is oriented to jointly tackling the topic of housing deprivation and energy efficiency in the scope of social housing sector towards a lower carbon economy. In this context the overall objective of the project is to improve regional policy instruments targeting the link between social housing sector and fuel poverty with green building interventions considering policy, institutional, financial and technical levels. Through interregional cooperation, regions will identify, share and transfer innovative methodologies, processes and good practices in developing and implementing greener social housing sector policies, targeting new constructions or retrofitting existing buildings. For do so, study visits, good practices workshop, local stakeholders meetings, among other dissemination events will be organised. Within this interregional learning process (phase 1 - 5 semesters) the regions involved in the project will develop important outputs, namely: self-assessment reports, good practices guides and regional action plans. Following the phase 1, it will start a period with the duration of four semesters - phase 2, focused on monitoring the implementation of the action plans developed previously and a final result report will be produced to summarise its achievements. The partnership includes 8 partners from 6 countries (Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Estonia, Sweden, Romania), with capacity to influence the policy instruments related to greening the social housing sector. One advisory partner, Nordregio (Sweden) will provide scientific and technical support to the consortium. The other partners, mainly municipalities, energy agencies and Managing Authorities will jointly work in the development of the main project's activities, namely preparation, implementation and monitoring.
Lead Partner: IFKA Public Benefit Non-Profit Ltd. for the Development of the Industry
In 2011, the European Commission launched the Social Business Initiative (SBI)2 in a recognition of the growing social economy and entrepreneurship that accounts for more than 11 millions of workers, 4.5 % of the active EU population. Since then, a lot has been achieved (e.g. the European Social Entrepreneurship Fund, Social Stock Exchanges), however, policies addressed to social enterprises are still under-developed and fragmented in most Member States.  Motivated by the above challenge, SOCIAL SEEDS partnership aims to equip policy-makers with evidence-based policy diagnostic tool that increases the effectiveness of local and regional policies for stimulation of growth & employment (preferably of vulnerable social groups) in social enterprises (SE) including their eco-systems in European cities and regions. To this end, regional and local government-run measurement and labelling scheme addressed to social enterprises (SE) will be established. It will help policy-makers’ concrete actions towards creating the right conditions to allow the sector to thrive.  Although, similar issues related to strengthening the position of SEs within the private & public sphere has already been part of EU development agendas for many years, but the focus on ranking and benchmarking regional and local SEs according to policy metrics is new. Therefore, SOCIAL SEEDS partners believe that the achievements will efficiently contribute to shaping European policymaking as well as engage multi-stakeholders in the way policies are generated, implemented and monitored.
