Announcing the OECD Global Action Promoting Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) Ecosystems What role for Social Impact Measurement? Webinar

While estimates vary, a cross-country study shows that traditional social economy organisations account for 6.4% of employment and11.9 million jobs across EU27 countries. To increase the scale and impact of the social and solidarity economy (SSE) globally, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has embarked on an ambitious three-year project with financial support from the European Union.

Join us on Wednesday 28th October from 1-2pm (UTC) (Remember the clocks changed this weekend!) to discuss the OECD Global Action.

Growing inequalities, persistent unemployment and environmental imperatives have come to the fore as priority policy issues. In that context, the SSE can contribute to building more inclusive and sustainable economies and societies. The SSE has indeed proved to be a longstanding agent of inclusive growth.

Among other topics, the OECD Global Action focuses on social impact measurement as a critical policy lever to help unlock the potential of the SSE. Covering 34 countries and beyond, the project shall deliver international guidance on social impact measurement for the SSE sector by the end of 2022. Join us to discuss how the Social Value International network could contribute to support these policy efforts.

Speakers include:

  • Antonella Noya, Head of the Social Economy and Innovation Unit, OECD
  • Irene Basile, Policy Analyst, OECD
