The Global Social Economy Forum (GSEF) is a global network that aims to serve as a hub for sharing visions and experiences through cooperation and collaboration to build an inclusive, equitable and human centered world.
At the GSEF2018 closing ceremony, which took place in Bilbao city, it was officially announced that the fifth edition of the forum, GSEF2020, would be taking place in Mexico City; however, due to the current pandemic, in 2020 a virtual version was made with more than one million hits.
This 2021, Mexico City will receive the GSEF2021 in its face-to-face and digital editions.
GSEF organises biennial international forums with its member cities across the continents. It is one of the most prestigious international gatherings on social economy, bringing together all stakeholders from international organisations, local/central governments and civil society networks.
GSEF Forums serve as a platform for mutual learning, agenda setting, and knowledge exchange.
