November resources (in collaboration with socioeco.org)

This month, we would like to highlight the work of 2 researchers who sent their latest publications available online to socioeco.org. This was in addition to what was already on the base. A big thanks to them.

  • ISABELLE HILLENKAMP holds a PhD in Development Studies from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Based on surveys in Latin America, her work focuses on the popular and solidarity economy, which she approaches from a socio-economic perspective, attentive to the links between economic practices and social relations. She is a research fellow at the Institut de recherche pour le développement in France.

The documents are here:: http://www.socioeco.org/bdf_auteur-865_fr.html

  • LUCIANE LUCAS DOS SANTOS is a senior researcher at the centre for social studies, University of Coimbra, and a member of the study group on solidarity economy at CES (ECOSOL/CES). She was resarcher at the ALICE Project – Strange mirrors, Ubsuspected lessons, an international project funded by the European Resarch Council, coordinated by Boaventura de Sousa Santos. Her resarch interests are: Postcolonial and decolonial studies on economics, feminist economics and feminist aesthetics, poverty and social inequalities from an interseccional perspective, Global South within Europe, indigenous and other economies.

The documents are here: http://www.socioeco.org/bdf_auteur-5199_fr.html

In addition, socioeco.org has recently referenced the initiatives of the Atlas of Utopias – Transformative Cities. You will also find them on the solutions map. A collection of very interesting initiatives carried out every year by civil society from Medellin, toChina, from Athens to Jakarta.

You can find the documents here: http://www.socioeco.org/scrutarijs_fr.html?q=atlas+of+utopias

Finally, we announce that all the documents of the UN-Interagency Task Force on Social and Solidarity Economy (UNTFSSE) are now referenced on socioeco.org. For example, by doing a search on SDGs: http://www.socioeco.org/scrutarijs_en.html?q=SDG

European Elections : The vision of Europe, through Fair Trade and SSE

On the 10th of May 2019, in collaboration with Bostani (a producers-consumers community which functions under the scope of sustainable and responsible production & consumption) and in the framework of our participation in the European elections « Fair Times Campaign », the Greek RIPESS Europe member DOCK organized the «Trade Fair, Live Fair» event in Athens, a public discussion about the vision of Europe, of economic justice and environmental sustainability.

The guest speakers, Francesca Guibilo for WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation) and Marketa Vinkelhoferova from Fair&Bio coop / Ripess EU (Czech Republic) offered their view through their important experience in these fields. Francesca presented the history of Fair Trade and informed about the strategy of WFTO in building alliances and networks in Europe and worldwide, while Marketa gave some examples and illustrated practices under which the connection of Fair Trade and SSE is becoming more and more present.

They focused on understanding better the history and the progress of the Fair Trade movement concerning the development of networks in different practices worldwide, but also on how public policies about sustainable production and consumption are being implemented in the current context and how they should change in the future in Europe.

Independent media talk about SSE

Independent media are close to the SSE, often by their status and especially by the values they defend. But how do they approach it? Here is a selection of independent media articles from the last three months. You can also find them on the map of socioeco.org: Journalism of Solutions (the articles are located in the city where the experience is taking place or, in the case of a general article, in the city where the media is based).

As you will see, the articles are in their original language, due to the diversity of European countries. For Greek, for which the Efsyn journal is particularly present with sometimes several articles per week on SSE, an English summary is included. This will allow you to perceive which themes are covered by these media: sustainable development, refugees, self-management, cooperatives, organic agriculture, etc. Feel free to send us an article or a media site to improve the map and our knowledge of SSE. Write to Françoise Wautiez: fwautiez[at]socioeco.org

GA2018: more inter-cooperation and convergence!

In a lively Zagreb filled with people enjoying the world cup festive atmosphere, RIPESS EU – Solidarity Economy Europe celebrated its 7th General Assembly meeting with members from all over the continent, from Spain to Russia. The first day – Friday 15th of June – was dedicated to the “Good Economy Conference” sessions, in the beautiful setting of the Kino Tuskana theater, with a small yet rich and colourful local producer fair and many sessions dedicated to sharing experiences from Croatia, the Balkan region and the rest of Europe.

The dinner party in Zmag’s Recycled Estate Farm – 30 km out of Zagreb – was the most welcoming, convivial and social networking evening there could be, where new members got to know the rest of the RIPESS crowd as well as the great Zmag team.  Pizza and local craft beer, as well as reggae music, helped create a true multicultural atmosphere.

One of the oldest schools in Zagreb, in the old part of town, was the setting for the actual Genera Assembly for an intense day and a half of strategy discussions (on convergence with other alter-economic movements, public policies and SSE, education, peer training and cultural change), elections for the renewal of the coordination committee and admission of new members.  Three new members joined the network: Bio Fair coop from the Czech Republic, Fair Trade Poland and Good Earth cooperative from Macedonia.

One of the main issues discussed was the promotion of the World Social Forum on Transformative Economies, a three year process of alliances and convergence with two main events planned to take place in Barcelona in Spring 2019 and 2020.  More to come about it…

The last day was dedicated to foster the inter-cooperation among members, sharing ideas, projects and areas of work where new exchanges and common actions can be discussed and help advance SSE concretely all over Europe as well as at the international level, connecting with the other continental networks of RIPESS.

Last but not least, lunch and dinner were assured by the excellent food prepared by two catering cooperatives, Taste of Home (whose main worker-members are refugees and asylum seekers) and Avocado, with the participation of local “Food not bombs” food recyclers…

Independent media talk about SSE

Here is a selection of articles of independent media from the last two months. You can also find them on the map of socioeco.org: Journalist for solutions (Articles are located on the city where the SSE initiative takes place or, in case of a general article, in the city where the media is located).

As you will see, the articles are in their original language, due do the language diversity in Europe. For Greek, for which the journal Efsyn is particularly present with sometimes several articles per week on SSE, a summary in English is included. This will allow you to perceive what are the themes dealt with by these media: sustainable development, refugees, selfmanagement, cooperatives, organic farming, etc. Do not hesitate to send us an article or the site of a media to improve the map and our knowledge of SSE.
