Meeting to summarize the Dragging project

On March 6, 2024, PCG Poland co-hosted the Dragging event with the Fundacja Inicjatyw Społeczno-Ekonomicznych.

During the meeting, Agnieszka Sokolnicka – project coordinator – talked about the project results:

  • Database of business ideas
  • Online course on entrepreneurship, which was created on the basis of the manual

During the workshop part, male and female participants in groups searched for solutions to social problems identified in their communities. A lot of creative ideas were born and a lot of opportunities to exchange experiences.

The event was an opportunity to meet people involved socially at different levels of social action: social welfare centers, labor office, local authorities, representatives and representatives of social economy entities, NGOs, academic centers. A truly networking meeting.
