About Us​

The DakarGSEF2023 Forum

Every two years, the GSEF holds the Global Social and Solidarity Economy Forum, in partnership with member cities around the world. It has become a key event for the social and solidarity economy (SSE), demonstrating how this concept is embodied today. At each edition, a declaration is adopted, binding the host city and participants and formalizing the commitment to work towards this human-focused economy, an indispensable tool for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. This event represents a privileged platform for shared learning and exchanging knowledge and perspectives on all aspects of the SSE. The GSEF is a global network of local governments and civil society stakeholders committed to promoting the SSE as a path to a “different economy” for the benefit of all, a means for empowering local development, centered on social and environmental issues.

The 6th edition of the Forum, #DakarGSEF2023, was held from May 1 to 6, 2023 in Dakar, Senegal, around a cross-cutting theme :

Social and Solidarity Economy & Territories : transitioning from “informal” economies to collective and sustainable economies for our territories.
