Next edition on May 16, 2024 in Solothurn

The #SSEF inspires, connects, and opens up space for exchange. For a positive social impact.

Clear the stage for the social economy

The #SSEF creates a national stage for topics around impact-oriented management and for its actors from practice, science, politics, and civil society.

Donut economics, business for good, purpose ventures, sustainable and regenerative, impact-driven, and social entrepreneurship; the economy of tomorrow has many names, but one thing in common: the focus on positive impact and the connecting credo "impact first".

To this end, the social economy hosts many initiatives, organizations and companies with similar goals and common challenges. This community needs a place for exchange and networking. A place to learn and develop.

Be there when the Swiss changemakers meet at #SSEF24. Here we network and get inspired, find like-minded people and work out solutions and answers to pressing questions.

Want to be part of the SSEF 2024? Then reserve your ticket now.

Official ticketing will be open from mid-February.

The Swiss Social Economy Forum is an economic forum of the next generation. For the next generation. For a planet worth living on and a strong, responsible society.

Review #SSEF23

On 25.05.2023, the social economy gathered again at the #SSEF - this year in Bern.

The diversity of participants reflected the breadth of the social economy and its diverse stakeholders. Thematically, the forum could be divided into four focal points: Education, Communication, Funding and Policy. For this purpose, panels, input sessions and two workshops were held.
