European Parliament

European Parliament, Brussels

On Tuesday January 23rd, from 9 to 11 A.M. the policy paper “Maximizing Dignity through social and solidarity economy”, promoted by the SUSY consortium (26 partners from 23 European countries), will be presented at the European Parliament in Brussel. The policy paper can be downloaded from the website:

The event will also be available via streaming from our SUSY Facebook page (

Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) Actors, implementing the SUSY project (SUstainable and Solidarity economY), demand from the EU Institutions and National Governments the recognition of the important role of SSE, for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through monitoring and control, binding mechanisms, recognition and promotion of education and training on SSE.

The event, hosted by the MEP Elly Schlein -S&D- will be an occasion to discuss Social and Solidarity Economy and its role in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Furthermore, the discussion will focus on how the SSE can represent a model for the private sector in the transition towards a sustainable economy. We will deepen the topic with Elly Schlein (Member of the European Parliament), Giorgio Menchini  (COSPE), Marina Sarli (Fair Trade Hellas), Kasia Hanula-Bobbitt (CONCORD EUROPE) and Jason Nardi (RIPESS).

More and more people are facing a number of social challenges related to an unsustainable economic model which include exploitation, precarious employment and living conditions, climate change, pollution and depletion of natural resources. Decent living conditions for everyone across the globe appear not to be compatible with our prevailing economic pathway. Competition and profits are the ground where our so-called development is rooted in, leading to multiple crisis, impossible to overcome without creating a new social paradigm where SSE can play a fundamental role. This new social paradigm is envisaged by the 2030 Agenda and the whole private sector is called upon to play a decisive role in the achievement of the 17 SDGs.
