* Political and conjuncture analysis
This is the moment of a global analysis where the world's situation, the global crisis and the actual challengesand the possible role of SSE in the world would be treated. This will be done in the Plenary with a RipessBoard member and one or two key speakers not necessarily directly involved with SSE.
2Someone from UN could also be called to contribute in this moment with the challenges on global governanceand the redefinition of the Millennium Goals in 2015. Results of the UNRISD Conference “Social andSolidarity Economy: Potential and Limits” could be a good input for the discussions.The results of the World Social Forum on SSE (July 2013 in Brazil) and the World Forum on Fair Trade (April2013 in Brazil) could also be briefly presented.People from the Plenary would also contribute with an “open forum” moment after the main speakers.
* SSE in the continents: state of the art
Each Continent will have members from RIPESS Board who will present a State of the Art of SSE in their respective continents. The continental SSE state of the art should provide an overview of social & solidarityeconomy initiatives and the movement in each the 6 continents: Africa, Asia, Latin America & the Caribbean,Europe, North America, and Oceania.At this point, each continental representative will also present briefly the main results of the proposals from theContinent about the Global Vision on SSE.

Self-managed activities.In this way, foreign and local participants can either display their products or advocacy materials. Local SSEenterprises will also be invited to present to the Forum participants their concrete practices in The Philippines,as a way to present concretely something about the reality of SSE in Asia.This will provide Forum participants and local community the opportunity to know something about thediversity of SSE in the World, engage the exhibitors in a dialogue and provide economic exchanges among theinternational actors that are present and also by institutional consumers from Asia, which are going to becontacted beforehand with a catalog of the products and services that are going to be available in the Fair.
2.3 Day 3
With the objective of deepening the discussions and producing resolutions that will guide the RIPESS membersin the next 4 years, the participants will focus on 4 themes during the day: “
Global Vision ”, “SSE Experiencesand Economic Integration”, “Global Networking ”
and “
Communication and visibility of SSE ”
.The methodological approach for this moment is to base the discussions on real and territorial basedexperiences in the 5 continents and have a very participative and democratic way to build its resolutions.
* Morning – Theme 1: Global Vision
In the morning
, all forum participants will be involved in crafting a Global Vision of SSE.
Theme 1: Global Vision
This Theme debates the basic principles that define SSE world-wide, and will serve as reference for Ripess'comprehension of SSE. Both viewpoints that are consensual or divergent (i.e. showing different perspectives on SSE)should be highlighted. The idea is that a basic document developed by the continental networks during the year couldserve as a reference for debate, besides the concrete initiatives that will be discussed in the workgroups.
Questions/Issues of this Theme:
Governance structures for SSE
Values of SSE that set it apart from neoliberal market oriented economy
Social development services provided by SSE and ecological conservation services
Economical sustainability
Prior to the Forum, the continental networks of RIPESS will initiate discussions on the global vision of SSE.Formulations of the global SSE vision will then be gathered and submitted to the respective RIPESS Boardmembers, who in turn will review the vision formulations. RIPESS Board members will then select what may be deemed as sound formulations of the global SSE vision and submit these to the Executive Coordinator of RIPESS. The RIPESS Global Forum 2013 participants will collectively review all the submissions and selectwhat they may deem as the best or most appropriate formulation of the global SSE vision.To build a common formulation, one possible methodology is the following: Forum participants will work insmall groups (organized by table) to formulate their respective global SSE vision. Finally, Forum participantsas a whole will decide (by casting votes) on the ‘best’ or ‘most appropriate’ formulation of the SSE globalvision. To establish collectively the consents and divergences on the global vision, other methodologies should be used.
* Afternoon – Themes 2, 3 and 4
In the afternoon
, the Forum participants will be divided into three workgroups which will treat the remainingthree themes: 2) SSE Experiences in the Territories; 3) Global Networking and Organizing; and 4)Communication and Visibility of SSE.Questions and issues to be treated in each Theme follow below:
 Theme 2: SSE Experiences in the Territories
 This group will be focused on the ways that the existing initiatives of SSE do their economic activities and their integration ineconomic networks and supply-chains. In this Theme, territoriality and sustainable development is a key aspect that should be present transversally in the discussions.
Questions/Issues of this Theme:
What actions/ innovations are being undertaken by SSE to link/connect (ethical) producers and (ethical) consumers? How tomake further advances in this aspect?
What actions/innovations are being undertaken by SSE to link/ connect (ethical) production and solidarity/social finance?How to make further advances in this aspect?
What concrete actions/ innovations are being undertaken by SSE to create an alternative market for SSE products andservices at the local, national, and international levels? How to make further advances in this aspect?
What actions/innovations are being undertaken by SSE contributing to territorial development? How to make further advances in this aspect?
