This exciting collaboration shone the spotlight on innovative initiatives helping to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable livelihoods. Funded through the European Union, the project aimed to strengthen the social and solidarity economy (SSE) by highlighting and promoting best practice case studies, and enabling mutual learning.
Initiatives that fall under the SSE umbrella are vast and diverse but have in common social and environmental objectives, and principles of reciprocity and community ownership. By addressing local and global needs, and creating sustainable livelihoods, SSE can play an important role in contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
