Drawing to a close on the centenary ILO celebrations of 2019
RREUSE presented at the ILO’s 11th SSE (Social and Solidarity Economy) Academy during the year, contributing to the session in mid-October (14-18 October) which took place in the Ministry of Labour, Migration and Social Security in Madrid, Spain. Approximately two hundred gathered for the SSE Academy travelling from five continents, for the event which aptly fell during the centenary celebrations of the ILO. The theme for the bi-annual academy, ‘The Social Economy in the Future of Work’ attracted a list of participants from UN Agencies, Cooperatives, Municipal Authorities, Universities, Civil Society Organisations and networks to name a few.
RREUSE Policy Officer for Social Affairs, Elaine Hanlon was joined by AERESS’s Laura Rubio, who also presented as part of the elective ‘Innovative models of production and consumption: Circular Economy, new consumption habits and their social and environmental impact.’
