new forms of entrepreneurship are

the development of a solidarity-based

social economy in Europe;

>

social innovations are to be found in

many fields, promoted at the local

level, but in the context of support

towards others, solidarity, shared responsibility,

commitment, participation, feeling of belonging,

sustainability and civility.”
