Community Forge co-organises an event during the UN Human Rights Council Social Forum

You are cordially invited to a side event of the UN Human Rights Council Social Forum on "Solidarity Economy and Alternative Finance: Another Development Model?" to be held at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland on 3 October at 1:15-2:45 in Room XXVI. The event will feature Thomas Greco but also colleagues from the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). The meeting is organized by the United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS), in collaboration with UNRISD and CommunityForge. (see details of the event in the flyer attached - English French).

Among other things, UNRISD will be announcing a new international research project on solidarity economy (including a component on complementary currencies), starting with a call for papers and culminating with an international conference on solidarity economy to be held at the United Nations some time in 2013. The meeting will be conducted in English but for those wishing to express themselves in French, we will find someone to summarize the interventions back in English. If you need a ground pass to enter the Palais des Nations, please send an email to David Vergari no later than 2 October 6pm. He will send you a form that you will need to present to security at the Pregny Gate (Porte de Pregny) entrance of the Palais (opposite the Red Cross)>
