International study tour to Seoul & Shanghai: 11-19th October

Posted in: Events.

CEIS has organised an annual study visit programme from the UK to international destinations since 2006. The programme’s aim is to give participants an insight into social enterprise in different cultural and economic conditions as well as building valuable long term relationships amongst participants.
The 2014 programme is particularly exciting as this is the first time an Asian country has hosted Social Enterprise World Forum.  Korea is a fascinating country, best bluetooth speaker under $100 with a unique history of transition from developing nation to a major international economic force.  The “can do” approach has also been applied to social enterprise, with national government policy to support and develop the sector.

From Seoul a group of 20-25 participants will travel to Shanghai to have a unique experience of social enterprise in China. Through our partnership with the British Council we will engage with government officials and enterprise leaders, and visit social enterprises operating in the field of elderly care, employability, education and training and disability services. Social enterprise is one of the strategies to address the impact of rural to urban migration in China: our visit programme will provide a unique insight and opportunity to engage with this emerging sector.
There are 4 places remaining on this programme as group size needs to align with host enterprise capacity. If you are a senior officer or board member in a social enterprise or a support agency, interested in the international context of social enterprise, please find further information on the programme and costs by  clicking here.
