Friends Of Social Business Forum

In a rapidly changing world, we are wondering how to shape a common future. On the occasion of the 200th birthday of Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen and the 10th anniversary of the Grameen Creative Lab, we bring together the ideas of the two pioneers for economic and social change.

We invite you to exchange and network to reflect on solutions to social and social challenges.

R + V and Grameen Creative Lab are delighted to be able to offer those who are not attending the event an insight into the work of cooperatives and social businesses.

This public evening event is open to anyone who registers for free and represents an extension of the Friends of Social Business Forum. This is especially about local players who move with their cooperative or social business-oriented commitment change in the city of Wiesbaden. Citizens have the opportunity to actively ask questions, get involved and discuss with the panelists. It’s about a lively exchange in which all parties have the opportunity to actively shape the future.

On the second day, you can get involved in workshops that are thematically oriented to current social trends and social challenges. The workshops are organized in the form of a barcamp. A barcamp is a special form of a conference. In contrast to ordinary specialist conferences, the exchange of knowledge and experience takes place mutually. The contributions are introduced and designed by the participants. A barcamp is thus a hands-on conference.

Furthermore, in dialogue with experts, you can gain a deeper insight into, for example, the founding of cooperatives and social businesses, social cooperatives and student cooperatives as well as the international work of cooperatives and social businesses. Discussions discuss, among other things, the way into the community age.
