Working groups

The 2021-2023 Strategic Plan is being implemented through the following working areas:

Working Area 1- Transcontinental advocacy in international arenas: 

Promote SSE in different international platforms and arenas in which many key stakeholders participate, like States, UN agencies, Universities, International networks and platforms, and other social movements. These platforms can be thematic (environment, SDGs, local development…), sectorial (food sovereignty, social protection, ethical finances…), and/or focused on certain groups (youth, women, migrants, informal workers, Indigenous People …).

Support and promote subregional and continental advocacy work for SSE, as each subregion has its own specificities and diversity, as well as key stakeholders to address regarding thematic, sectorial, and specific groups’ challenges.

Working Area 2- National and local networks’ advocacy for SSE Public Policies: 

Support the promotion of SSE towards local governments, at the national and local level, through reinforcing the support from the continental SSE networks towards their national members.

Enhance the sharing of advocacy tools and strategies between different countries from the different continents in a spirit of joint construction of SSE public policies and programs between SSE actors and local governments.

Working Area 3- Convergence with other movements for joint advocacy and the reinforcement of the networks:

Develop more alliances with other transformative economies and civil society movements and networks, as well as with any other multi-stakeholders’ platforms with transformative vision in order to join forces and get more impact in our advocacy actions.

Working Area 4 – Information, tools and education material for SSE promotion: 

Give greater visibility to grassroots SSE work from all over the world, as well as to the national SSE networks’ actions; and allow exchanges of experiences and tools between the SSE actors and between the networks, to contribute to reinforcing and disseminating these practices and innovations, including from specific groups (women, youth, informal sector, indigenous people, etc.) to reinforce the global movement.
