The One World Convention on Social Business in Passau was a great success!

Interesting expert lectures and controversial panel discussions imparted a bright knowledge base on the topics of social business, microfinance and development policies to our OWC participants and the public. This knowledge base was deepened in several workshops and on our best practice fair it was possible to get directly in contact with successfully working social businesses. Finally the participants of OWC even set up their own social business plan that is ready to be implemented in future.


But OWC not only provided a lot of knowledge input on social business – a great entertainment program at night provided for a intercultural exchange and a lot of fun among all participants.


All in all, we enjoyed an unforgettable, instructive and inspiring time!
