The Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) is the leading forum for international exchange and collaboration in social entrepreneurship and social investment. The success of the event in galvanising the global movement of social enterprise has created a platform for learning, sharing of good practice, ideas and creating partnerships has made it the main forum for the social enterprise sector. The annual event was first held in Edinburgh in 2008 and has since been held on six continents. This is a historic occasion as it is the first time the SEWF will be held in an emerging market economy.
With the theme of “Investment. Innovation. Impact,” the sector’s flagship event will bring together hundreds of attendees from around the world working to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to the three billion people who live each day without it. Registration details coming soon.
Drawing from IFDC’s and its partners’ experience with the successful 2SCALE program, this workshop will focus on 2SCALE successes in setting up and supporting partnership and business models with significant potential to attract and employ the youth, to engage and empower women, and to improve food and nutrition security, both at grassroots level and at the consumer end of the value chain.
Industrialisation in Africa has promised to bring jobs, alleviate poverty and catalyse economic growth across the continent. How can Africa leverage the digital transformation of Industry 4.0 to enable this growth? Long term investment in technology, innovation in manufacturing and skills development for youth will be critical in accelerating and scaling access to nutritious food, healthcare and affordable housing for all. By adopting Industry 4.0 technologies, Africa can address its greatest development challenges, including creating decent jobs.
