Taiwan Local Employment-Social Enterprise Tour
Join fellow social innovators at Taiwan Local Employment- Social Enterprise Tour!
A day before the summit, two social enterprise tours are offered by the local community and practitioners to give attendees an authentic and meaningful experience of social enterprises in central Taiwan as a lead up to “Tomorrow Asia—2018 Asia Pacific Social Enterprise Summit”.
Come and see how employment promoting programs created socially valuable jobs that also are profitable in eldercare, agriculture, and eco-rehabilitation, developing into an integral part of Taiwan's social enterprise ecosystem. The whole community is committed to showcasing the best of their practices with DIY activities and in-depth tours that will give attendees a chance to gain insight of how the local social enterprise sector operates first-hand.
Simultaneous interpretation will be provided to facilitate the activities.
