World Social Label Institute
Care to Change the World
World Social Label - an introduction
The World Social Label Institute, sometimes abbreviated WOSL, main task is to counteract exclusion at a local, regional, national and transnational level. The keys lie in the unification of the private and the idea-driven sector, and the goal is for it to be economically sustainable and economically profitable to work for a better society.
"The goal is to create a completely new ecosystem for social integration, gender equality and inclusion in society"
An inclusive business community for an equal society A modern solution to an outdated problem
Here, a toolbox is created for the business community to make it attractive to work with people in isolation. The toolbox includes everything from award-winning CRM systems, templates for websites, free video services without restrictions to sales platforms and equal payment services, educational programs and even participation in society through the EUSL Foundation. Everything is part of a single membership. The World Social Label Institute reports all income so that members can clearly see exactly where their membership fee goes. Perhaps the best is saved in the end: All members are involved and decide where their membership fee should be used for. It is not possible to say the same about today's tax-based financial system and one of the objectives is to change this.
Our concept The idea-driven sector
The starting point is the idea-driven sector that does a fantastic job for our fellow human beings. The World Social Label wants to bring it together with the private sector to bring the best of both worlds. According to the Riksdag, there are just over 300 work-integrating, social enterprises in Sweden, and according to Statistics Sweden, there are just over 1.1 million private companies of all sizes. Imagine if the private sector could do a small part of what the idea-driven sector does. Then the exclusion and its associated costs would probably decrease significantly for society.
The idea-driven sector is vital for many people who for some reason are further away from the labor market. Today, there is a great shortage of social enterprises and with the rising unemployment, there is a good reason to focus on these as well. In Sweden, there is a need to develop a new company form for idea-driven entrepreneurs and its employees.
Through their own company form, idea-driven companies can have their own raison d'être, as it is today, these companies can commit offenses according to the Swedish Companies Act if they do not write an exception in their memorandum of association that they want to focus on the idea-driven idea.
For many who are new or back in the job market, today's pace and demands can be a difficult challenge. Then the idea-driven sector is a great opportunity and within the World Social Label and the European social Label, we want as many of these activities to emerge as possible.
Our concept The private sector
Approximately 1.1 million private companies operate in Sweden and a total of just over 24 million in the European Union, the EU. The World Social Label Institute, with the European Social Label in Sweden and the EU, wants to make it easy and flexible, especially for small businesses, to work with people in isolation. As it is today, it is often a complicated process against authorities, it is associated with some hesitation from a societal aspect and it is often something that is considered a cost.
The disadvantage of the idea-driven sector versus the private sector is that in the latter many remain and in practice block places for others who also need a chance to enter working life, for the first time or again. With the right tools, new opportunities are created for small businesses around Sweden, Europe and the rest of the world to work with people in isolation. Membership in the World Social Label Institute and European Social Label also provides the opportunity to make it profitable through active marketing, brand development and services that are both better and cheaper than many other alternatives.
We call the reasoning RoomsWithoutanAppointment, a room without a meeting, which aims to make any place in society accessible to anyone, regardless of religion, functional variation, orientation or need to have a reason. to stay at the place in question.
World Social Labels Cabinet
Because the world looks very different wherever you are, the World Social Label Institute has chosen to divide the world into four cabinets. Each cabinet is then divided into a varying number of divisions, all of which have different orientations. The divisions and their orientations are applied there in reverse, from the bottom up and start locally and go there by regional, national or, states or provinces. The smallest component is called Market Areas, which benefit the divisions for each focus, and each market area has access to the same toolbox. What differs is how the members choose to use the said toolbox. Some will focus more on education, others on digital services, a third on social services. The purpose is ultimately the same: To create a better society for everyone to live and work in.

EUSL Foundation A stupid foundation
When the EUSL Foundation was formed, the reasoning was simple: All profits should go into the foundation and then out into society through what is defined as social contributions in society. These social contributions must be both defined and determined by the members. The challenge was to create statutes that allow this as they are normally narrow in their design. In computer terms, therefore, the foundation becomes a so-called stupid foundation, which should be compared with a smart foundation, a smart home or a smart TV. The foundation itself has very little to say about, other than in the actual execution of a social effort. The EUSL Foundation is the ultimate spearhead for the public for the World Social Label and its subdivisions.
The hope is that it is through the foundation that the outside world will hear about the World Social Label Institute and the local activities. Below you can see some of the foundation's activities, but more can be seen on European News Flash, the European Social Label's own channel for social integration work.
