The 21st century has been referred to as the ‘century of cities’ so many times that it has basically become a cliché, cities are where the population is concentrated, and where a great number of the challenges facing people around the world manifest themselves: the fight against climate change, managing diversity, optimising basic resources, and the fight against inequality and poverty, to name but a few. The trends that have emerged in recent years and that also go in the direction of reconciling economic and social goals (like in the case of the social economy and social enterprise), as they are all characterised by increased attention to the social effects of economic activity. This session also aims to demonstrate that the Social Economy is useful for all society as they take on these challenges.
