Solidarity economy (SSE) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

« The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a renewed global commitment to not only end poverty and hunger but also achieve universal social protection, reduction of inequalities and environmental sustainability, all requiring fundamental changes in the way our economies function. The 2030 Agenda recognizes that a holistic approach is needed and that business-as-usual is no longer an option. If we are to realize the transformational vision of the 2030 Agenda, it is crucial to look at alternative development strategies and emerging economic models that can be optimized for sustainability and inclusiveness.

SSE can play a crucial role in the realization of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs by promoting inclusive and sustainable development through concrete social, institutional and technological innovations and practices. The linkages between SSE and all 17 SDGs, outlined in detail in the matrix contained in the Realizing the 2030 Agenda through Social and Solidarity Economy TFSSE document, draw attention to its potential as an alternative model of development that can address the structural underpinnings of exclusionary and unsustainable development. » (excerpt from the TFSSE document).
