ABOUT THE PROJECT

SocioLab is the first major project in Slovenia aimed at establishing a comprehensive ecosystem for enhancing the potential of individuals, initiatives and communities. The project promotes, supports and expands the operation of social enterprises and cooperatives in the Podravje region.
Social economy combines business with innovative solutions for solving social problems. In addition, the operation of social enterprises and cooperatives also ensures greater social inclusion of vulnerable groups, contributes to poverty reduction and enhances the quality of life. Social economy puts people and the environment before capital and profits.
