Welcome to the ISSME campaigns!
In this section you can find information and links on the campaigns that the ISSME has developed or joined. Two of the current ISSME campaigns are permanent ones: World SME Day and One World One Definition. Please check their respective links for more information on each campaign.
ISSME encourages its members, affiliates, partners and volunteers to take responsible action and get involved. Our successes are driven by the efforts of our supporters and activists like you all around the world.
