Education Sector and the Social and Solidarity Economy

Abstract - EN

This entry examines the relationship of SSE to enhancing the scope and quality of education worldwide. In higher education, this relationship is reflected in a specialized curriculum to support cooperatives and civil society through cooperative and social-economic development. Universities are employing technology to create both national and international networks to support students in the development of entrepreneurial skills leading to new SSE businesses. Primary and secondary education has a stronger emphasis on addressing the challenges of access to education in lesser developed regions. In advanced industrial societies, it plays a role in strengthening cultural capital and fostering ties for youth to the SSE through youth cooperatives.
