The call for proposals for GSEF 2018 is open until February 28th


The call for proposals for the 4th edition of the Global Social Economy Forum (GSEF) is open until February 28th, 2018. RIPESS, as a close partner of GSEF, warmly encourage you to participate.

The Global Social Economy Forum (GSEF) is an international network that brings together regional and local governments, Social Economy agents, civil society, universities and social organizations committed to supporting the development of the Social Economy (SE).

The Forum, held this year in Bilbao, Spain, in 1-3 October 2018, is therefore an excellent opportunity to learn about the best practices of local governments and SSE around the world, strengthen international collaborations, as well as sharing your experience  around the main thematic lines (note that each of them includes different subtopics- see their full description):

  1. Co-creation of public policies.
  2. Contribution of the SE to regional transformation.
  3. Challenges to the growth of SE entities.
  4. The future of work and employment: the role of SE.

Submit your initiatives until February 28th, 2018. Please note that you must follow few steps to present your proposal . Full information is available here:

As a reminder GSEF is a RIPESS member and RIPESS is member of GSEF and its Steering Committee. As in GESF2016 Montréal, RIPESS wants to be present at GSEF 2018 with a strong international delegation from Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, underlying the importance of solidarity, cooperation, alliances, and participative and active co-construction of Public Policies.

We really hope to see you in Bilbao.

RIPESS is a worldwide network of continental networks promoting the Social Solidarity Economy, in order to transform our economy by putting people and the planet at the center of our activities.
