With this webinar, we want to continue the previous discussions, now focused on SSE Public Policies. Therefore, we hope to discuss aspects such as: What are the best SSE practices, from local to global?, In which local, regional, and international spaces are the SSE movements co-constructing with local and national governments? How can this process of co-construction at different levels help the SSE movement to better address the challenges of Covid-19 and beyond? on which Public Policies specifically? What are the next steps we should take/are taking together? How can we learn from each other and co-operate to improve our actions?
