What is it?

The Euclid Summit is Euclid Network’s flagship international 2-day gathering of people and organisations who have the openness to learn from, encourage and inspire each other to drive positive change. Our Summit 2018 mission is to stimulate all stakeholders – everyone – to take responsibility for growing their ecosystem for social impact.

Who is it for?

Individuals and organisations from across Europe who believe in cross-sector and cross-border collaboration to make a positive social impact: social enterprises, civil society organisations, cities/ regions, national governments, networks and support organisations, universities, businesses, social investors – everyone’s responsible!

How does it work?

  • “Euclid Network is uniquely positioned to bridge the cross-border gap between civil society coalitions in European countries. The diversity of membership is its strength and focus of its programmes on leadership and social enterprise are of clear relevance today.”

    Eva Varga Independent Expert in Social Investment and Adviser to the European Commission and the OECD.
  • “Civil society has been going through many challenges over the past years - there is a need for civil society organisations to constantly build on their capacities, to be up to date with the international trends and tools that can help drive social impact and change. We are convinced that the Euclid Summit is a perfect opportunity for NGO representatives to learn from peers, to share experiences, contribute their own innovations and ideas and develop new alliances.”

    Franz Karl Prüller Former Chairman of the Board of ERSTE Foundation
  • “Euclid Network is an invaluable partner of Mouves at European level. Thanks to Euclid’s contacts and work across Europe, Euclid contributes to put social entrepreneurship in the international highlight. We can rely on Euclid's expertise in European funding and networking."
