Social Enterprise Day aims to raise awareness on and celebrate social enterprises on 16th November 2017.

Background
Social enterprise day is a concept origianlly launched by the English organisation for social enterprises Social Enterprise UK.
The last couple of years the day has been celebrated in England and a few other countries on the Thursday during the Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Together with Social Enterprise UK Social Entrepreneurs in Denmark took the initiative to expand Social Enterprise Day in 2017 by getting more countries involved. The vision was and is to have more international focus on social enterprises.

Physical Activities:
On Social Enterprise Day 2017 saw someorganisations and social enterprises of the participating countries hosted different types of events, workshops and seminars on social enterprises.

The digital Campaign:
An essential part of Social Enterprise Day, is creating focus on Social Enterprises by using social media.
Most countries didn´t have physical activities, but only participated in the digital campaign on Social Enterprise Day 2017.
Organisations, social enterprises and everyone interested in helping putting focus on social enterprises joined the digital campaign on Social Enterprise Day by posting statements on and pictures of social enterprises using the international hashtag #SocialEnterpriseDay and a national hashtag.
In England the national hashtag was #whoknew
In Denmark the national hashtag was #købsocialt
