FORS Montenegro organised a training on Social Entrepreneurship for unemployed persons from the northern region of Montenegro from 10 to 13 April. The training was organised in order to promote social entrepreneurship and possibilities that this concept offers for creation of new jobs, solving social problems and the overall socio-economic development. Also, it enabled the participants to gain knowledge and skills for starting social enterprises, from an idea to the implementation phase and providing resources for sustainability.
The trainers were Ms Sonja Vuković and Ms Dragana Lisjak from the Association Slap, who have long term experience in this area and who also presented good practice examples in functioning of this way of entrepreneurship. The training was attended by 25 representatives of youth, women and long-term unemployed.

The round table was also attended by representatives of the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare, local authorities, civil society organisations as well as unemployed persons registered at the Employment Office of Montenegro, who participated in the discussion on the development of social entrepreneurship in Montenegro. The aim of the event was to familiarise participants with the importance of social entrepreneurship for creation of new jobs, solving social problems, the overall socio-economic development of a country and the current situation when it comes to the development of this concept in Montenegro.
FORS Montenegro started implementation of a new project – SEEM – Social Economy for Employment in Montenegro whose aim is to contribute to employment of youth, women and long-term unemployed through their capacity building and promotion of social entrepreneurship as a means of self-employment which at the same time contributes to solving certain social problems.
The project is implemented in partnership with the association "SLAP" from Croatia and it is funded within the Grant scheme "Youth, women and long-term unemployed at the labour market", which is part of an EU project "Active labour market measures for employability“, implemented by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare.
