SSE models and practices represent forms of territorial intelligence that consider the innovative potential of territories and are capable of energizing local economies while allowing more equitable access to employment and income opportunities.
In today's crisis, SSE practices can create an opportunity to apply a variety of innovative solutions for sustainable recovery. This requires that the transformative potential of the SSE be recognized and applied as part of comprehensive policies and strategies to promote socioeconomic rehabilitation efforts from the territorial level.
The sessions aim to analyze the experience of local and regional governments in the application of SSE practices as part of comprehensive policies and strategies in response to the current crisis and in the transition towards more sustainable and inclusive development trajectories in the context of current crisis.
The session aims to analyze different models and practices of the SSE and the experience of local governments in its application, involving the actors of the SSE to inform and guide public policies towards an inclusive and sustainable response to the effects of the crisis. .
The format of the proposed session is a round table that allows representatives of local and regional political governments, as well as other organizations and professionals of the SSE, to show and discuss, from the respective regional or local contexts, evidence of innovative political responses who turn to SSE as the foundation for a transition to more inclusive, cohesive and resilient communities.
Key topics for discussion will include: how SSE is integrated into local recovery plans through the empowerment of community SSE actors and their participation in decision-making processes; what is the potential of the SSE to coincide with the repair of disturbed local economies, renewing their capacity to innovate and create value, while guaranteeing social cohesion and well-being, (re) shaping the relations and modalities of production and the supply chain dynamics that affect access to basic goods and services; and explore the relationship of specific SSE models and practices with local territorial policies and processes for cohesion and local development (for example, social enterprises and community cooperatives as drivers of local development dynamics integrated in the Italian experience).
