7th Edition of the Social and Solidarity Economy Academy (Costa Rica)

November 21, 2016 to November 25, 2016 All Day

San José, Costa Rica

The 2016 ILO Academy on SSE will take place in Costa Rica, from the 21st to the 25th of November.  The main theme is the SSE from the point of view of local development.  Issues discussed will be on public policies, impact on decent work, south-south cooperation, tools for credit among SSE enterprises.

The ‘ILO Academy on Social and Solidarity Economy’ emerged as a hub and catalyser of innovative initiatives to support the SSE. It started as a high level capacity building programme, which was proposed by more than 200 practitioners on the occasion of the ‘ILO Regional Conference on Social Economy’ held in Johannesburg, in October 2009. This proposal developed into the first edition of the SSE Academy, organized in Italy (2010) by the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO). The second edition happened in Montreal (2011), attuned to the 1st International Forum on the Social and Solidarity Economy (FIESS) which was held in the same city in the previous week. The third edition happened in Agadir (2013) in collaboration with the REMESS (Réseau Marocain de

l’Economie Sociale et Solidaire). The fourth and fifth editions were held respectively in Brazil (2014) and South Africa (2015) and had a strong focus on knowledge exchanges and collaboration between Latin America and Africa. The most recent edition of the SSE Academy happened in Puebla (2015) in partnership with the Mexican National Institute of Social Economy (INAES).
