Background
Social Enterprise Day is a concept originally launched by the English organisation for social enterprises Social Enterprise UK
The last couple of years the day has been celebrated in England and a few other countries on the Thursday during the Global Entrepreneurship Week.

In 2017 Social Enterprise Day went global. Social Enterprise UK, The British Council and Social Entrepreneurs in Denmark (SED) took initiative to expand Social Enterprise Day in 2017 and involve more countries. Social Enterprise Day in 2017 managed to involve stakeholders and social enterprises in 23 countries across the world.

 

The digital Campaign #SocialEnterpriseDay: 
An important and essential part of Social Enterprise Day, is to create focus on social enterprises using social media. 
The digital campaign was easy to take part in. It is set up to allow social enterprises, organisations, supporters - actually everyone - to share statements, stories, fotos etc. that shows how social enterprises have a positive impact on people and society and how you support them.
All that’s required to take part is downloading an editable poster, filling it out and sharing the picture on social media using the hashtag #SocialEnterpriseDay.

ExExamples could be:
- This coffee is creating sustainable employment for the homeless #SocialEnterpriseDay
- Did you know that this van has been repaired by people recovering from mental health conditions #SocialEnterpriseDay
- I buy my honney from this social enterprise, that create meaningful jobs for homeless people #SocialEnterpriseDay
