The 4th 3Zero Forum in Tunisia “Placing the Economy at the Service of the Common Good” allowed to deepen the reflections led during the previous Forums for a 3Zero Tunisia. This unique moment of exchange was the opportunity to equip the actors by proposing a series of workshops and activities allowing all the volunteers to seize the tools of development of the SSE by decompartmentalising the sectors in order to allow everyone to become an actor of a Zero Carbon, Zero Exclusion, Zero Poverty Tunisia. In order to keep the multi-actor dialogue going in Tunisia, Convergences suggested a new Forum on December 1st 2022 in Tunis, based on the work carried out during the local working groups that started in January 2022. You can find more details following the consultation below.
