The session on “Develop territorial and international alliances to promote the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) as a people-centred and planet-sensitive economy” reflected on different key aspects characterizing the social and solidarity economy (SSE) as key actor in the pursuit of Agenda 2030 and a better recovery. The panel discussion focused on the importance of alliances and partnerships at different levels – local, national, regional and international- to strengthen SSE ecosystems and promote SSE’s role in the achievement of the SDGs, in order to promote a people-centred and planet-sensitive economy. The session, co-organized by the UN Inter-Agency Task Force and on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE) and Intercontinental network for the promotion of social solidarity economy (RIPESS), benefited from its members and observers’ experiences and knowledge.
