From November 10-12, 2014, “Make it work”, a European conference about participation, work integration and social entrepreneurship, took place in Amsterdam. The conference brought approximately 100 participants together from 15 countries, forming the keystone of the European Commission subsidized project INWORK.
The goal of this project: to advance the social participation and employment integration of vulnerable groups. Social entrepreneurs, policymakers, researchers, social workers, guidance counselors and clients of work and integration projects all made up the participants of the conference. The second day of the conference took place in Meervaart during the Participation Fair. Workshops were offered and participants could partake as well as gather inspiration for their own projects.
