DATE AND PLACE OF THE EVENT

Last editions

Since 2012 Action against Hunger has organized this annual event as the inclusive employment and entrepreneurship forum in order to promote the social inclusion of people at risk of exclusion, especially long term unemployed, young people, women and immigrants.

The forum was a place of encounter, exchange of experiences and discussion among actors representing groups with little presence in the labour market and in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, that is, public administrations, Third Sector organizations, and employment and entrepreneurship support organizations.
