The British Council is offering a number of bursaries to support UK social enterprises to attend the 2019 Social Enterprise World Forum in Ethiopia.
As part of their Global Social Enterprise programme, the British Council has been building international connections for the UK social enterprise movement for a decade – by sharing the UK’s experience in developing a supportive ecosystem for social enterprise, by creating opportunities for UK social enterprises to build international networks and work overseas, and by bringing learning from other countries back to the UK.
In support of this agenda, the British Council is partnering with Social Enterprise UK through their annual Social Enterprise Awards to provide shortlisted social enterprises in certain categories with a bursary to support them to attend the 2019 Social Enterprise World Forum in Ethiopia.
SOCIAL ENTERPRISE WORLD FORUM 2019
The British Council is hosting the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) this year in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The annual forum will take place between 23 and 25 October and is expected to draw in around 1,200 social enterprise leaders, policy makers, development partners, private sector representatives and more.
With a theme of ‘Local Traditions, Fresh Perspectives’, this year's SEWF aims to provide all delegates with an authentic Ethiopian cultural experience through facilitating a number of study tours and side events alongside the main forum.
