The lecturer this year will be Pauline Graham from Social Firms Scotland. The Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) would like to invite you to the annual John Pearce Memorial Lecture and an update on the Social Enterprise Collection (Scotland).
The lecture will consider perspectives on the Social Enterprise Community in Scotland which has been built on the roots of community action and an inherent enthusiasm for entrepreneurship. It will also reflect on the development of social enterprise in Europe and how the ‘Scottish Model’ fits into the more international aspects of social enterprise. The lecture will also speculate on key challenges for social enterprise in Scotland and the need to frame the forthcoming 10 year social enterprise strategy within a wider policy context.
The lecture will be followed with food and drinks in the reception area at 7.15pm.
