The UN Taskforce on Social and Solidarity Economy and Social Economy Europe co-organise the event “Social and Solidarity Economy: leading the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the contribution to a fair recovery”.
The event will take place on April, 29 (10:00-16:00 CEST) in the framework of the European Social Economy Summit (#EUSES) on the day dedicated to Partnerships for maximising social impact.
This session will examine the transformative role that the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) plays advancing the sustainable development goals (SDGs). It will also highlight the urgency to unlock its potential to tackle today’s structural economic, social and environmental crises. Policy recommendations will be discussed during the session to feed into international debate and into the European Action Plan for the Social Economy.
The panel discussion (13:30-15:00 CEST) will reflect on different key aspects characterizing SSE as key actors in the transition towards the UN 2030 Agenda and a better recovery including:
- Cooperative entrepreneurship, decent work & reindustrialisation;
- Green and just transition;
- Fight against poverty and the promotion of peace;
- Partnership and multi-stakeholder approach.
CIRIEC will be present with the intervention of Béatrice Alain, Executive Director of “Chantier de l’économie sociale”, Co-chair of TIESS and CIRIEC-Canada.
