Social Futures: Future of Youth Employment – 2nd April, 3.30-6pm
How can social entrepreneurship create more jobs & opportunities for young people?
How can you help shape the ‘Election Manifesto’ for the future of the Social Economy?
This event will provide the chance for young people and supporters of the sector to inform and shape policy recommendations for the Social Economy Alliance ahead of the 2015 General Election, to ensure social entrepreneurship features as a significant part of the solution for the future of youth employment.
UnLtd leads the alliance work-stream on work and believes that enterprise, social entrepreneurship, training and education, self-employment and job creation can help address the problems of social immobility, unemployment, and stagnating wages and living standards, inequality, disadvantage and reduced access to opportunity.

Social Futures – Future of Enterprise – 13th March, 3.30-6pm
The Government should develop programmes of support to help embed a culture of social entrepreneurship in schools and colleges, was one of the recommendations to emerge from a recent UnLtd Social Futures event which explored the challenges and opportunities for inspiring and supporting more young people to participate in enterprise and social entrepreneurship activities in schools, colleges, and universities, as well as outside of formal education.
As part of our Living It campaign, celebrating and showcasing young social entrepreneurs, Social Futures provides the opportunity for young people to have their say on the issues that impact on their lives and directly influence relevant policy agendas.
The event at Google Campus in London on 13th March focused on the future of enterprise and social entrepreneurship education. It gave young people an opportunity to inform and shape policy recommendations to ensure enterprise and social entrepreneurship is open to new entrants at all ages and stages of people’s lives.
