Now it’s time to deliver on the Social Business Initiative

Jonathan Bland rallies troops to get behind the Commission’s proposals on social business: “Those with experience across the EU, and beyond, should mobilise to pool their knowledge to support the Commission and their partners in national and local government and make this ecosystem a reality.”
