Social and solidarity economy (SSE) is raising its profile internationally! Last September, the International Leading Group on SSE featured SSE at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in New York thanks to a side-event chaired by the President of France François Hollande. Paul Ladd, new Director of UNRISD, took part in the event, along with other members and observers of the United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on SSE. For the video of the side-event, click here.
Read our latest think piece, The Invisible Player: Social and Solidarity Finance for Financing for Development, part of the UNRISD Series The Road to Addis and Beyond. The findings stem from our research project on Social and Solidarity Finance in connection with UNRISD project on Politics of Domestic Resources Mobilization.
Join us in two forthcoming events on SSE and cities:
– The 7th edition of the International Forum of the Social and Solidarity Economy Entrepreneurs organized by the Mont-Blanc Meetings, 26-28 November 2015, in Chamonix, France. The theme of this year’s edition is “Human and Sustainable Development of Cities and Territories“.
– The 2d edition of the Global Social Economy Forum on “Local Governments and Social Economy Stakeholders, Allies for the Intelligent and Sustainable Development of Cities”, 7-9 September 2016, in Montreal, Canada. The call for proposals for innovative initiatives is now open.
With kind regards,
