CNLQR: Call for action in popular neighbourhoods
June 8, 2018
0

Are you an actor of the social solidarity economy in your country? Do you carry a local development project in popular neighbourhoods?

The National Liaison Committee of the Régies de Quartier, gathering more than 133 associations in France seeks to get to know the European actors of the popular districts carrying a project similar to theirs. If you are carrying out actions in favour of professional integration, solidarity economy or popular education in neighbourhoods, let’s talk about it! 

To find out more (and read French), look here.

Independent media talk about SSE

The independent media are close to SSE, often by their statutes but particularly by the values they defend. But how do they approach it? 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.

Solidarity Spring in France: a report
May 30, 2018
0

On March 22 and 23, 2018, the Solidarity Economy Movement organized its Printemps Solidaire, around the issue: What socio-economic models for the Solidarity Economy?

Fifty people came together at the Maison des réseaux artistiques et culturels in Paris, to reflect together on the development prospects of the Solidarity Economy and our movement.

On the occasion of the publication of the proceedings of the meeting find here a summary of our exchanges and download the proceedings of the meeting (in French).

SSE mappings by Socioeco: SDGs, Public Policies, Journalism, Training

Your interest in social and solidarity economy may have led you to use the socioeco.org resource web site. Since its beginnings in 2011, the site has evolved a lot: in addition to the 5 main languages, French, Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese, we can now find documents also in Catalan, German and Greek.
The site works in alliance with other data bases that it references through its search engine: in addition to 15 000 references specific to socioeco.org, there are still 14 000 others of more specialized sites: public policies in favor of SSE, inclusive finance, fair trade, complementary currencies etc, a total of more than 28,000 accessible and largely downloadable references.

This time, we want to talk to you about the new section: “SSE mappings. Everything started from the desire to highlight the descriptions of initiatives that we collected little by little. Thus was born a first map in OpenStreetMap: the map of SSE solutions. Initiatives are classified by the need they meet: health, food, housing. It also shows that SSE produces differently, consumes differently, organizes the work differently, finances differently, focuses on the concept of territory, etc. The idea is to inspire and spread by reading descriptions of initiatives, more in-depth case studies, watching videos …

This first map then led to new ones:

the”Public policies for SSEmap: by putting in place specific filters, we can visualize public policies from municipal to national scope, meeting needs as previously: health, food, etc. But we can also filter by type of policies: do they target a particular audience or sector? Are they related to responsible public procurement? Are these policies aimed at making cities protagonists of change?

the “Journalist for solutionsmap: shows the alternative, independent and cooperative media that exist around the world but also the articles of these specific media that concern social and solidarity economy. A way of highlighting press articles that concern SSE and are produced by newspapers or magazines that have often chosen a cooperative status.

Two new mappings have come to enrich this section recently :

– These are the maps related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the United Nations 2030 Agenda. How does the SSE fit into the pursuit of these SDGs?

First, we took the map of Solutions and then the Public Policies one and classified the initiatives and policies, not by need, but by Sustainable Development Goal. Thus, the Guide to Responsible Public Procurement of the Municipality of Barcelona or the Madrid Ciudad de los Cuidados Plan (Madrid City of Care) are in line with SDG 11 for resilient and sustainable cities. For their part, all the initiatives related to a quality-based, local, solidarity-based and food sovereignty-oriented agriculture (CSA and responsible consumption) are in line with SDG2: End hunger, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. These are the maps: SSE for the Sustainable Development Goals and “SSE Public Policies for the Sustainable Development Goals”.

Finally, socioeco.org was approached by the Global Curriculum of Social and Solidarity Economy Campaign, with which RIPESS has made an alliance since last year; an educational initiative bringing together already 44 organizations from 18 countries in the South and North. It aims to promote spaces for dialogues between academics, educators and SSE actors form the whole world, with the purpose to establish common principles of SSE training and research that highlight the practices and know-how of the actors but also make visible the diversity of training experiences that exist around the world, among others through:

– the map of pedagogical tools and SSE trainings : guides, manuals, pedagogical notebooks, courses, educational videos constitute the material recorded.

We hope that this little tour of SSE mappings will be useful. Needless to say, of course, these maps are constantly fed with new resources. If you know of any useful materials that you would like to see referenced on one of these, do not hesitate to write to Françoise Wautiez <fwautiez [at] socioeco.org>

Communities that transform the economy

Article from Comune-info: Comunità che trasformano l’economia, Monica di Sisto and Ricardo Troisi, 16 May 2018

A great tapestry that intertwins a great deal of research on the territories (and the development that follows) with the testimony of a hundred experiences of the know-how that aspire to weave the novel drawing of a society and an economy capable of transforming the current order of things. By looking them next to each other, all these large posters marked with felt, result of many hours of open discussions, fruitful and dense, demonstrate the idea of ​​a possible alternative, result of a rigorous and in-depth work . This is what came out, and much more, of the two days of the event Stories of the Possible (Storie del Possibile) that took place at the Ex-Lavanderia of Santa Maria della Pietà, in Rome and whose drafting, considerably “enlarged”, was carried out by Comune-info. The opposite of a cold workshop that would build solemn and fragile alliances rooted in a final document. A temporary community, but potentially capable of spreading to many others, which has shown in a dynamic and user-friendly way its power to act and choose without the need to define or create a hierarchy or representatives. A community that is formed day after day, is self-governing but that is not delimited by exclusion, the limits of a group or a space. It was a pleasant spring weekend, needless to say, the systemic changes that you aspire to build with a craft patience in everyday life, but it seems to us that there was great need for this great tapestry.

Let’s recover our journalistic sovereignty
April 26, 2018
0
Article of Setembre, April 24, 2018 by Sara Blázquez

“Recovering journalistic sovereignty, for me, is changing the chip and understanding journalism as an activity and not as a product of consumption or a merchandise, and recognizing it as a collective practice”

“Recovering ownership of the media, basically, is also to escape commercial and docile journalism with the advertisers and institutions that support practically all the current media”
 

Setembre is among the promotors of a new European network of alternative and cooperative media

Blaming the Internet and the new technologies for the crisis of journalism is literally an outgrowth of those who are part of what is really causing the crisis of the media: capitalism. And not the disintegration of a business model. In the words of Pere Rusiñol (Alternativas Económicas), “The problem is that where previously there were companies owned by newspaper publishers, today there are companies owned by the financial sector. The problem is that the bank becomes a press editor ».

It is true that advertising revenues, which largely support many media, have plummeted, but it is also true that the crisis of the mass media is due to the mismanagement of its managers, who too often have forgotten the values of journalism to be too close to capital and power. In return, many times, from a simple slap on the back.

Since the crisis began in 2007, 10,000 journalists have lost their jobs in Spain only. Just the same year that many of us left the university, eager to explore ahead or, at least, put a little bit of sand in the transformation of journalism. The news about the closure of the media or the dismissal of constant workers , male and female, made us see that it would not be easy and that the first thing that we should transform would be the organizational model of the media itself.
