Every year since 2007, the World Forum for a Responsible Economy invites speakers from all over the world to come share their ideas and present new and more sustainable economic models to encourage entrepreneurs to get involved in a responsible economy.
The World Forum is a fantastic meeting that raised the issue of social business and now the region has declared they want to get involved. This is amazing that the North region wants to be fully commited to the social business idea and take leadership on it. It is inspiring not only for France but for the whole world.
