Frameworks and action levers for metropolitan areas, urban agglomerations and large cities to reinforce social and solidarity economy (SSE)

What advantages does the social and solidarity economy (SSE) provide in response to socio-economic challenges in urban areas? What local strategies support social innovation? 

Discover in this study inspiring examples and statements by elected officials, as well as keys to understanding certain institutional and legal frameworks to answer theses questions!

Avise, RTES and France urbaine share the conviction that SSE and social innovation provide robust solutions in response to the socio-economic challenges in urban regions, in particular : 

  •  in terms of region’s economic development and attractiveness, in particular by developing the local economy, capturing and anchoring local incomes (local resident, corporate and administration consumption, retain companies’ added value, local cash flows, etc.) ;
  • by strengthening social cohesion and regional equality, by generating new services, projects that foster social interaction, cooperation and good citizenship ;
  • by inventing new solutions to the challenges posed by the transition to an ecological and solidarity-based environment, which are real drivers for the circular economy, sustainable food supply, sustainable housing, sustainable energy transition, responsible and solidarity-based digital technology, etc.

Published for the elected officials and technical specialists of metropolises, agglomerations and large cities, this study was based on numerous contributions from some fifty RTES and France urbaine members, as well as on documentary research. It shows how these public stakeholders can fully integrate social innovation ecosystems in order to improve the living environment of inhabitants and promote the equity and attractiveness of their region thanks to an urban development strategy that is economically, socially and environmentally responsible.

In the wake of a sudden and unprecedented pandemic with wide-reaching economic and social consequences, as well as increasingly urgent ecological and climatic challenges, the importance of building alternative regional development strategies that are truly sustainable has become abundantly clear. Given their size and responsibilities, cities and their agglomerations are at the heart of the development of these strategies. More and more metropolitan areas are relying on SSE and social innovation stakeholders.
