Collective Action. Sustainable Change.

Our annual flagship event brings together thousands of social enterprise leaders, policymakers and purpose-led people with one goal: to raise awareness of social enterprise as an expanding global mechanism for social change. Each year, we move around the world, working with a different co-host to bring you challenging, topical programmes featuring local, national and international expertise. SEWF23 will be a milestone in Amsterdam’s journey to creating a well-being economy that prioritises people and the planet.

  • Ecosystems: Increasing opportunities for trade, collaboration and collective action
  • Fairness: Ensuring equality and inclusion for all
  • Migration: Entrepreneurial solutions for better lives
  • New Economy: Putting people and planet first
  • Planet: Living and trading within planetary boundaries
