Be the exponential change you want to see in the world


is an initiative of COSV,
led by the Social Economy Unit team.

We live in exponential times.
Everything around us is moving fast and all societies need to adapt and find a way to co-create solutions for complex challenges.

To move forward together a paradigm shift is required and we believe that Social Economy has a big role to play in the upcoming future.

Social Economy’s growth is potentially exponential because is a model of sustainable development for all: founders, entrepreneurs, investors, workers, volunteers, suppliers, clients, direct and indirect beneficiaries.

COSV is committed to strength the social economy ecosystem around the world, contributing to the development cooperation domain and the Social economy one, enabling the collaboration between Social Entrepreneurs from different areas.
