The South African government is busy developing a strategy to help cultivate the social economy in the country.
I’ve been fortunate to contribute to the strategic process – I’ve been interviewed several times and shared some written insights with the project team.
At the time of writing this article (February 2019), the government has commissioned a Green Paper on the Social Economy – a draft set of policy proposals for discussion. Green Papers tend to be followed by White Papers or official policy documents.
Since this strategy has been on my mind recently, I took a moment to record my thoughts and share them online and with the policy team. I’m also curious about what form you think the Social Economy Strategy should take.
