Vital Neighborhoods in Metropolitan Cities

There is an increasing international consensus on the importance of community as the basis of a diverse society and an inclusive economy. One of the obvious examples of the economic role of communities is the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), an economy of social transformation. In addition to offering products and services, SSE businesses have spin-offs and added value for our communities: environmental protection, social and professional reintegration, neighborhood revitalization, and poverty alleviation, to name a few.

The Social and Solidarity Economy is about building an economic model with both the community and local resources. This is the key to the sustainable development in the framework of Sustainable Development Goal 11 on Sustainable Cities and Communities and the Goal 8 on the Decent Work and Economy Growth. Dialogue and collaboration with local governmental bodies is vital; not only does it enable the growth of the social economy, it also benefits the governments concerned. It improves the impact of public policies and enables the development of effective and innovative initiatives to respond to community needs.
