On November 2nd, Social Economy Europe (SEE) and the American Sustainable Business Network (ASBN) declared their support for UNRISD’s breakthrough SDPI User Manual and announced the accompanying, ongoing SEE-ASBN-UNRISD “Own The Metrics” campaign launched in late November 2021 at the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) World Cooperative Congress in Seoul. Its purpose: to “build collective, cooperative and mutualist voice and agency for development and promotion of SDPI indicators from the global social economy perspective”. This campaign is about those doing, innovating and proving the work finally owning a proportionally equal seat at the global rulemaking and standards-setting tables.
