The European Social Economy Action Plan is a crucial step to build a sustainable, inclusive, and social Europe. The European Green Deal strives to leave no person and no place behind, and the European Pillar of Social Rights sets out to build a strong Social Europe. The Social Economy is a cornerstone for delivering these goals to the people of Europe.

 CECOP urges the European Commission to ensure that five dimensions are covered by the European Social Economy Action Plan:

  1. Recognition, reach and consistency
  2. Support policies for social economy enterprises of general interest
  3. Skills
  4. Job creation and retention
  5. Platforms and the digital economy.
