The Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakech and the University of Haute-Alsace are organizing the annual Colloquium of the Inter University Network of Social and Solidarity Economics (RIUESS) in Marrakech from the 22nd to the 24th of May 2017.

This is the first meeting with partners in North Africa. The theme chosen jointly by the two organising universities and the Inter-University network: How to train in the social solidarity economy? Engagement, citizenship and development.

Among others, this conference will address issues such as:

  • Which path should be taken to include alternative economic models, innovative sociocultural models, if not utopian?
  • What SSE representations are being promoted by the universities of the North and the South of the Mediterranean?
  • Does the ESS demand specific models of learning and skills? How to promote them and develop coherent trainings?


RIPESS Europe is also participating to IVET, in partnership with 7 other European participants, and will highlight the first results of this research during these days.
