As a preparatory path for the GSEF Global Virtual Forum between 19th and 23rd October 2020 and GSEF2021, GSEF Secretariat, in collaboration with Local Organizing Committee of GSEF2021(Mexico City), has been organizing Webinar Series from May through September to illustrate the major impacts of COVID-19 on our societies, economies, and SSE fields in particular, and share the creative actions undertaken by local governments and SSE stakeholders in the fight against COVID-19.
The upcoming English session of the 4th cycle of the webinar series, which is also the last session of a four-month long journey, will talk about “The Evolving SSE Ecosystems in the post-COVID-19 Era”. Escalating the existing urban issues such as healthcare, job market and local economy, the COVID-19 has changed our way of living and working. Social and Solidarity Economy Organizations and Enterprises (SSEOEs) need to adjust themselves to stay resilient in this unprecedented crisis. During the process, the SSE ecosystem is also evolving and contributing to transforming our economy into a sustainable and inclusive one in the post COVID-19 era.
In this “finale” of GSEF webinar series, speakers from SSE intermediary sectors, healthcare groups, and platform economy will share their experiences and insights on how SSEOEs have adopted innovative ways of collaborations and technologies such as online platform and mobile technology to maintain their service and to complement fights against COVID-19. Based on the experiences learnt, speakers will share their ideas of the possible features of the evolving SSE ecosystem.
