In 2023, ITCILO Turin developed two modules for an online open access awareness-raising package on social and solidarity economy (SSE) for the UNTFSSE. With financial support provided to the ILO by the Government of Luxembourg, these modules were made available in English, French, and Spanish.
Both modules are now available in Portuguese and Russian. Arabic, Korean, Swahili, Turkish, Wolof, and Yoruba language versions will be made available shortly.
