A multi-stakeholder event on Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) was held on 13 December at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, hosted by the UN Taskforce on Social and Solidarity Economy, and the representations of ChileFrance and Spain towards the UN.  The event showed the large coalition of 16 countries from different regions of the world that are promoting a UN resolution on SSE: Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Chile, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Slovenia, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Mongolia, Senegal and Belgium. SEE calls on more countries to support this initiative that will contribute to the global momentum in favour of the social economy as a driver to achieve the SDGs. 

We are living a global momentum for the social economy with actions taken by the EU, the ILO, the OECD and the UN, among many other institutions. We welcome the fact that 16 countries are currently supporting the project of UN resolution on SSE and we call on more countries, from the EU and other regions of the world, to join this coalition that shares the vision of the social economy as a key driver to achieve the SDGs.
