Last December 9, the Leading Group on SSE organised a meeting to set up a working group to prepare documents and position papers, including preparing an international conference, possibly in 2018. Yvon Poirier, Vice-coordinator of Ripess, attended the meeting (held in Paris) by phone.

RIPESS will share different documents written in the last years and will continue participation in meetings. The International Association of Investors in the Social Economy (INAISE) will act as secretariat for the working group.  RIPESS has close relations with  INAISE since 2004 and we share a similar vision of financing SSE (we participated in the INAISE conference in May 2016 in Montreal).
