In Novo mesto, we held our focus group where we gathered our stakeholders and discussed the social economy in our region. We talked about the biggest challenges, legislation in Slovenia, reasons why you do not run your business as a social enterprise, etc. We gathered important information that will help us analyse the current situation of the social economy in the southwestern region.

The focus group was held on Monday, November 14 at the Novo mesto Development Centre. There were about 15 participants with a lot of knowledge about the social economy. We had a good debate and a great look at all the important aspects of the social economy in the Southeasten region, from legislation to the first steps of what we should do for a better development of social entrepreneurship in our region.
