Call for pledges on proximity & social economy

31 January 2023

Following the publication of the Transition Pathway on Proximity and Social Economy in November 2022 as part of the updated EU Industrial policy and the European Social Economy Action Plan, the European Commission launched a call to collect pledges from stakeholders on the concrete initiatives they will take in order to help achieve the shared actions identified in the Transition Pathway. The report puts forward a set of 30 actions in 14 different areas to further support the social economy in leading fair green and digital transitions. The pledges will help address gaps, pool resources towards shared milestones and mobilise support at all levels.

Euricse was part of the team that, together with Diesis Network, Euclid Network, and Social Economy Europe, supported the Commission in the co-creation of the Transition Pathway. This included the analysis of the results of the public consultation launched by the Commission, the drafting of two policy papers and the organization of a set of workshops with relevant stakeholders.

As part of the co-implementation process, we encourage social economy stakeholders to respond to the ongoing call for pledges on proximity and social economy.
