Over the next three years ACRE is working in partnership with Rural Councils Victoria (RCV) to deliver cross sector learning workshops across the 38 RCV member councils. These facilitated workshops deliberately bring together your cross-sector leaders from government, community, education and business to learn about social enterprise. Building social and economic capital simultaneously has been a key to community re-generation in the northern hemisphere.

The ‘Understanding Social Enterprise’ learning workshops are a practical two-day program that introduces participants to the objectives, purpose, theories and practice of social enterprise. The outcome of the workshop is to get your cross sector leaders on the same page about the potential of using social enterprise as a vehicle to support economic and community development. Importantly, at the same time, starting the journey towards developing an enabling environment to support the ideas of the next generation.
