REVES Events in Siena, Italy (June 16 – 17, 2011)
Barka UK representatives took part in the event organised by the REVES Network in Siena, Italy. REVES, the European Network of Cities and Regions of Social Economy organised a seminar to explore ways to fully exploit the potential of territorial social Initiatives in terms of improvement of social cohesion through better quality of life for all citizens. In the three laboratories, the forum looked at the “why”, the “who” and the “how” to do it.
As a consequence, Barka Foundation – in partnership with local authorities of the city of Poznan and regional authorities of Great Poland Region (Wielkopolska) have been invited to join the REVES Network by its Co-President, Mr Jan Olsson.
To discuss details of cooperation between REVES and Barka, REVES Co-President Mr Olsson will visit Poznan in July 2011.
Barka representatives’ report from the conference will soon be available on this website.
