This webinar is part of a series of webinars hosted by RIPESS Intercontinental that aim to promote the solutions SSE brings to the global challenges we are currently facing. This series is part of an open process of debate, called RIPESS SSE 2020 Global Vision, through which RIPESS is gathering many diverse SSE voices and perspectives, as well as those from other allied movements and institutions. A first cycle of webinars already took place in April and May on the Covid-19 crisis in the various regions of the world and the response that SSE is building to face the many socio-economical challenges.

For this upcoming webinar, RIPESS aims to continue these discussions and launch the debate on the co-construction of Public Policies for SSE from the perspective of SSE actors, as well as underline the importance of advocacy from local to global levels. Questions that will be addressed include: What are the best SSE practices, from local to global? In which local, regional, and international spaces are the SSE movements co-constructing with local and national governments? How can this process of co-construction at different levels help the SSE movement to better address the challenges of Covid-19 and beyond? On which Public Policies specifically? What are the next steps we should take/are taking together? How can we learn from each other and co-operate to improve our actions?
