Social Enterprise Day takes place throughout the world next Thursday 16th November during Global Entrepreneurship Week (13-17th November 2023).
The day is a great opportunity to raise awareness of social enterprises and what they do in Northern Ireland. Across the day, we will be sharing lots of social media content around the #WhoKnew campaign, so we want you to join us in the celebrations and take part online.
If you are a social entrepreneur, social enterprise employee or an advocate/volunteer within the sector, we encourage you to get involved to share the amazing work being done and educate others about your social mission and the local impact on local communities and people.
Ahead of next week, we ask that you plan and schedule your social media content – whether it’s photographs, videos on Facebook or Twitter or reel content on Instagram, make sure to use this day to your advantage to tell your story and highlight the excellent work that you do! Every year we mark the day by using it as an opportunity to raise the profile of the incredible impact social enterprises are having on communities in Northern Ireland and around the world through the #WhoKnew campaign. If you have not taken part in previous years, it is a simple online action designed to allow you to tell your story and highlight your impact. All you need to do is write a short message about your work/the social enterprise, take a photo, and then share it on social media. Make sure to tag us on social media @socentni and use the official hashtags #WhoKnew and #SocialEnterpriseDay and we will re-share!
