See Light is a project funded by the European Lifelong Learning Grundtvig programme. It is set up to catalyse the development of different organisations across Europe who have a strong interest in social entrepreneurship and social economy activities as a means of labour integration of disadvantaged groups.
A key aspect of the See Light initiative is the facilitation of 6 international knowledge sharing events that will take place in 6 countries between 2013 and 2015. The events incorporate, discussions, skill sharing workshops and visits to existing social enterprises. A lot of additional information is in prime essays https://prime-essay.net/. The aim of the visits is both to cross fertilize current ideas and collectively nourishing new ones.
