The Western Development Commission is hosting an online event Our Rural Future – Social Enterprise Opportunities for Rural Development’. The event takes place on Thu, 30 September 2021 from 11:00 – 13:00.

Social enterprises are an important part of local economies in rural areas, often filling gaps in markets that are not attractive to commercially-focused companies due to low population densities or economies of scale.

The Our Rural Future: Rural Development Policy 2021-2025 published in March 2021 represents a new milestone in the approach to rural development in Ireland.

One of the key deliverables from ‘Our Rural Future’ is to support the development of Social Enterprises in rural areas to increase their social, economic and environmental impact and contribute to job creation locally.

This online event will bring together key stakeholders involved in rural social enterprise to discuss the challenges and opportunities for social enterprises in rural communities. There will also be an opportunity to virtually visit three social enterprises to see the impact they are having in their communities.
