This exciting collaboration is looking to find new and innovative ways to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable livelihoods. Funded through the European Union, it aims to strengthen the social and solidarity economy 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.
At the beginning of the project, research was carried out on SSE good practice across Europe and the world. Read the full research report, or download the Susy brochure which provides a summary of the research findings. If you would like to print this, see the folding guidelines.
