Social and Solidarity Economy

We define the Social and Solidarity Economy as a collective of non-state companies (in the sense of structured activities involving women and men engaged in a common project) based on equality, democratic management, non-profit, but also, according to our conception, consciously engaged in a movement of social and ecological transformation.

From India to Quebec, from Japan to Italy, the Social and Solidarity Economy gathers citizens’ responses to the economic, social, environmental and cultural needs of populations and forms the basis for democratic alternatives.
