The role of the social and solidarity economy in rebuilding Ukraine

Roundtable

The role of the social and solidarity economy in rebuilding Ukraine

In the wake of the war in Ukraine, the need for innovative and sustainable economic reconstruction strategies is more pressing. The Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) presents an unprecedented opportunity to integrate financial returns with measurable societal benefits, paving the way for a resilient and inclusive recovery path for Ukraine.

With Ukraine's strategic move towards EU integration and the necessity for post-war recovery, the round table aims to highlight the critical role of SSE in fostering sustainable peace-building initiatives and economic prosperity. This gathering of pivotal stakeholders aims to spotlight Ukraine’s initiative to become a flagship country for the Pact for Impact Global Alliance, illustrating its dedication to adopting SSE as a linchpin for sustainable development, economic fortitude, and social welfare. Through this alliance, Ukraine aspires to lead by example, showcasing how SSE can engender a transformative impact on traditional economic paradigms for a sustainable future.

Agenda

Understanding SSE: Unpack the principles of the Social and Solidarity Economy, UN Resolution for Social and Solidarity Economy, and objectives of Pact for Impact Alliance. Discuss how Ukraine's alignment with these frameworks can transform its economic models towards sustainable and inclusive development.

Role of SSE in Ukraine and building resilience: Analyze how SSE practices can underpin Ukraine's reconstruction efforts, promote community resilience, and foster social cohesion, with a focus on Ukraine's ambition to serve as a pioneering country within the Pact for Impact Global Alliance.
