Restart and Rebuild Finale
November 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Throughout the COVID pandemic, social enterprises have proven to be both resilient and agile in responding to the needs of Scotland’s most vulnerable groups and communities. Much of this has been as a result of Scottish Government’s swift action to ensure that substantial resources were made available at the outset of the crisis.
However, as we move from the Response phase – we want to build on the success of the SE Reset Week held in May 2020, and move on to focus on Restart and Rebuild. SENScot and the SENs, in partnership with others, will be hosting a week-long series of events – to inform, inspire and connect social enterprises from across Scotland.
During the week we will have hosted more than 20 sessions with 100’s of social enterprises participating.
Join us for the finale where we will shine a light on Climate Change and Social Enterprise.
You will hear from inspiring social enterprises who will showcase work that they are doing to help tackle climate and environmental breakdown. We will consult the social enterprise sector on our aspirations for a Climate Change and Social Enterprise Strategy – which will encourage all social enterprises in Scotland to unite and lead the way to NetZero transition by 2045.

- Pauline Gordon, SENScot (Chair)
