🎯Topic: social economy 
Social economy represents a departure from the current economic system, and while it's hard to define, it includes cooperative or self-managed companies, DAOs, and mission-driven ventures, community-oriented projects, and non-profit organizations. 
Despite differing opinions, the discussion around achieving a better way of living is vital. An alternative economy - whether called solidarity, circular, or sharing economy - is about creating a better future, and it's up to us to make it a reality. 
📊 Un-conference format 
Un-conference is a non-traditional event that has an open agenda and allows participants to co-create its format. The agenda is created by the attendees at the beginning of the program. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic or any activity can claim a time and a space. This means yes, you can organize your own talk, panel discussion, or brainstorm! 
🧑‍💼 Participants 
Public sector, business, state. Ukrainian and international. Perhaps, we speak different languages, but we do share the desire for peace, cooperation, and abundance. The expected number of participants is 50-100 people. 
💸 Cost 
Open donation for the SupportUkraineNow project — a program for the development of young leaders in Ukraine.
