SILK Project

Social Solidarity Economy International Learning and Knowledge Community of Peers (2021)

The SILK project is one of the six Peer Learning Partnerships of the OECD Global Action, funded by the European Union’s Foreign Partnership Instrument. 

Coordinated by Diesis Network, it gathers a consortium of important SSE organisations from EU countries, USA, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, India and Korea. The SILK consortium works on the internationalisation of SSE enterprises and organisations through international peer learning and knowledge sharing Activities. Internationalisation is the process involving multilateral flows of goods, services, financial resources, information, skills and knowledge within and between organisations, and across countries. The issue of internationalisation for SSE organisations has witnessed recent developments, that the SILK project, with the work of its consortium, aims to analyse. 

The learning objectives of the project are to: 

  • Develop internationalization of SSEs organizations 
  • Implement Peer Learning activities 
  • Facilitate a significant step forward in building more resilient SSE ecosystems.
