Erasmus meeting in Timisoara

By Josette Combes

An Erasmus project following the previous one focusing on the inclusion of SSE in initial and vocational training programmes brings together several RIPESS Europe members: CRIES (Romania), DOCKS (Greece), MES (France), Solidarius (Italy), Technet (Germany) under the coordination of APDES (Portugal) and with the contribution of RIPESS Europe. The first transnational meeting took place in Timisoara hosted by CRIES. European projects are also subject to budgetary restrictions at the initiative of the Portuguese Agency. The meeting was largely dedicated to adjusting the program initially planned to the cuts made in the budget.

The project will run for three years. Its objectives are as follows:

  • Provide curricula to strengthen the skills of trainers in programmes to integrate young people without jobs or qualifications.
  • Propose SSE as a social-cultural, interdisciplinary innovation that provides employment opportunities, especially for those furthest from it.
  • Raise awareness of SSE as a sector that provides employment and an interesting sector in terms of professional and human investment, starting by raising awareness of initial and continuing vocational education, within a local development framework.

Each partner will need to find territories of partners/stakeholders/locally from different macro-regions, which are available to get involved in the project in order to experiment with the modules and participate in their dissemination.

In its final year, the project will produce transmission and communication tools, including a video, with the aim of promoting and disseminating the approach on a European scale**.

Joint projects are an excellent support for intercooperation between members and for strengthening actions in the territories through the circulation of knowledge and skills present in the organizations of each country.

Rethinking Economics: changing how Economy is taught
Rethinking economics

Last August the Rethinking Economics International Summer Gathering  took place,  bringing together 75 students and academics from all over the world at La Bergerie de Villarceaux, in France. Representatives of progressive fundations such as the Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation, Partners for a New Economy, or the Edge Funders Alliance also attended the meeting to discuss the role of philanthropy in overcoming the current extractivist economic system. Rethinking Economics is an international network of students, academics and professionals that lobbies to overcome neo-liberal economic thinking in society and in the academic curriculum. 

10 years after the beginning of the Global Financial Crisis there seems to be a wide consensus among many different initiatives on the need for the so-called “transformative economies” to converge into a common global agenda. Some of these initiatives that also attended the gathering were the Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WeAll), Promoting Economic Pluralism (PEP), Reclaim Our Economy or Finance Watch. Villarceaux was a perfect context to exchange some ideas on how to work togehter effectively and how the World Social Forum of Transformative Economies of Barcelona could be a platform to work on this convergence.  The presentation took place on August 16th and many of the students who were present, showed interest in collaborating with the Forum from the different local organisations they represented.

Through the World Social Forum of Transformative Economies, RIPESS, REAS and XES have committed themselves to organising a two year path that will cross through events all around the world that include two meetings in Barcelona, in 2019 and 2020. The official presentation at the Rethinking Economics International Summer Gathering of Villarceaux paves the way of a process that will follow in the next 2 years.

In this event, there will be an opportunity to reflect in several sessions and workshops – on four thematic areas:

Participate in the survey of RIPESS Intercontinental on SSE Education!

> Click here to take the survey

SSE Education is a key element of the work carried out by social movements to put forth the Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) as a holistic alternative economic model. Over the course of 2015-2016, the Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS) seeks to bring together peoples engaged in SSE education (popular and community education, formal education, training for practitioners and SSE development organizations) to connect and strengthen the links between SSE educators, foster collaboration and share experiences, strategies, tools and curriculums.

The goals of this project are:
– To build and strengthen connections amongst SSE Educators for mutual support, exchange and collaboration.
– To share experiences, best practices, tools and curriculum.
– To develop materials and resources to improve or fill gaps in SSE education.
– To discuss strategies to advance education about the SSE in communities, educational institutions, and among SSE practitioners and SSE development groups.
– To lay the foundation for a RIPESS SSE Forum/School that includes the development of a curriculum with a common core that can be supplemented by localized material.

The initiative also aims to identify gaps in SSE education and to collectively develop tools for SSE educators, for instance building on the Global Vision of RIPESS. An international survey, webinars and other trilingual (English, Spanish and French) spaces for exchange and collaboration will be facilitated so that we can learn from each other’s experiences.

The survey is a first step in this project. Thanks for contributing to build it by participating in this survey and by sharing it widely among your networks!

You can take the survey following this link.
