IN EUROPE

Pushing social entepreneurship in Europe

At SOS GROUP, we believe that social entrepreneurship and the European project are connected. In a time when citizen movements are expressing their wish to revitalize the European project by calling for stronger social priorities, social entrepreneurship is definitely part of the solution to meet the economic, social and ecological challenges faced by the European Union today.

COOPERATION IS THE KEY

The challenges we face in France are often the same as those of our neighbors. The fight against inequalities, the necessary adaptation and fight against climate change, education, training… The issues echoe each other and the know-how of the involved players complement each other. Through cooperation, we join forces to make all European societies fairer, more sustainable and in tune with the major issues of our time. We strongly believe that, working together, we will have a bigger impact and be much more effective in finding solutions to our common challenges.

Below 10 Project

The Below10 project aims at reducing the EU ESL (early school leaving) rate below 10%. ESL refers to 18-24 year olds with only lower secondary education or less who are no longer on an education pathway or in training. It is a serious problem for young people as it can lead to social and economic exclusion, low employability and low self-esteem.
