Debate in Macedonia – What makes your society better?

On the Thursday, 6 December 2018, Belle and co, the South African partner in the Dive Deeper into Social Entrepreneurship programme, was invited to take part in a debate hosted by lead partner in Skopje, Macedonia together with partners from Turkey, Peru, Portugal, and Romania.

The topic of the discussion focused on “What a better society in your country?” with a particular focus on the topic of social entrepreneurship. The event was open to the public and was hosted in a restuaryant called Kantina in the centre of the city of Skopje. The idea was to attract mainly young people to engage with the diverse panel and share challenges and solutions to problems affecting people in their society particularly the youth.

The debate took advantage of the fact that the consortium of partners were in Macedonia for the final evaluation meeting of the Dive programme, and could share their experience with the local community.
