Welcome to the
GSEF DAKAR2023 (1-6 May)

Every two years, the GSEF holds a Global Social Economy Forum, in partnership with member cities around the world. It has become a key event for the social and solidarity economy (SSE), demonstrating how this concept is embodied today. At each edition, a declaration is adopted, binding the host city and participants and formalizing the commitment to work towards this human-focused economy, an indispensable tool for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. This event represents a privileged platform for shared learning and exchanging knowledge and perspectives on all aspects of the SSE. The GSEF is a global network of local governments and civil society stakeholders committed to promoting the SSE as a path to a “different economy” for the benefit of all, a means for empowering local development, centered on social and environmental issues.
