The United Nations Inter-agency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE) will organize a virtual event on “What role for the Social and Solidarity Economy in the post COVID-19 crisis recovery?” on 10 July 2020 between 15:30 and 17:00 (CEST).
This webinar aims to examine how and why the SSE plays – in a pluralist economy – a transformative role in pursuing the SDGs and highlight the urgency to unlock its potential to tackle the current structural economic, societal, social and environmental crises.
The session will also be an opportunity to present the UNTFSSE statement on “What role for the Social and Solidarity Economy in the post COVID-19 crisis recovery?”. Based on UNTFSSE experience and international evidence, the panel discussion will reflect on different roles of the SSE in a “better recovery”. The virtual event will be held in English. A livestreaming on the UNTFSSE channels will be available, along with the recording of the event.
