Intercontinental webinars “SSE 2020 Global Vision”

Watch the webinar LIVE: “Más allá de la emergencia de COVID19: construyendo respuestas colectivas y duraderas a través de la ESS” [Spanish].
RIPESS Intercontinental is launching a series of webinars to promote how SSE brings solutions to the global challenges we are facing. This is part of an open process of debate where we want to gather diverse and different SSE voices around the world in an effort to build convergences between different SSE perspective and visions.

Through discussing topics such as SSE & co-construction of Public Policies, Youth, or Sustainable Food, how SSE can be a sustainable option for Youth, amongst others, these webinars are part of the update of the RIPESS SSE Global Vision for 2020 among our continental and sectorial members. All webinars will be online and open to ensure the process is collaborative and reflects diverse social and cultural visions, and realities of convergence.

We also believe this vision should be constructed with other transformative economies movements, and thus we will invite other movements to take part in most of our webinars.

Exceptionally, the first intercontinental launching webinar will be split into three (one per language: ENG, FRA, ESP) as we will be able to guarantee that each continent can share their vision and grassroots initiatives in the current COVID-19’s crisis.

You will find all the information about the next webinars that are planned, including topics to be discussed, speakers and how to register.
