The social enterprise sector is the driving force of social innovation and solving deep rooted social problems. This year's Hong Kong Social Enterprise Summit (HKSES) follows the theme of "Our Answers for Tomorrow".
As a proud partner of the HKSES, British Council is organising a "Sharing with Social Entrepreneurs" session on Tuesday 4 November, with the topic "Developing an eco-system for social enterprise in East Asia". The session will discuss the development of social enterprise in East Asia and with a special focus on social franchising in China. Social entrepreneurs from East Asia will also share their experiences with participants.
