How do social enterprises affect our wellbeing?
Posted on by email@example.com
This forum explores findings from a 3-year project which explores how and where social enterprises touch the lives of people, economies and societies of two regional cities, Launceston and Bendigo.
Governments and communities invest in social enterprises to bring about individual and/or community benefits, but just how social enterprises impact on people’s lives and communities is not well understood. This forum explores findings from a 3-year project which used GIS mapping, observations and interviews to show how and where social enterprises touch the lives of people, economies and societies of two regional cities, Launceston and Bendigo. It will discuss how social enterprise fits within regional city economic and social development.
A panel, moderated by Professor Richard Eccleston, will discuss implications of findings for Launceston and its social enterprises.
