During this summer (from July until September) the campaign of solidarity exports travelled to Berlin, after Belgium and Luxembourg through the cooperation of social organisations and SSE initiatives in Germany and in Greece. The “heart” of the campaign is how an alternative – fair and solidarity trade , without mediators with full access to all information about quality, origin, working conditions, environmental impact of the products is possible.
Conveners: Georgia Bekridaki (Solidarity for All), Jason Nardi (Solidarius Italia)
The necessity of this workshop came up in previous meetings (in Florence, in Berlin, in Greece) as a constant need among members not only to explore the possibilities for potential cooperations and contributions, but also to get to know each other in depth, to promote the European dimension of current socio-economic situation, to share the knowledge which every partner obtain.
Mapping the current and the permanent needs of our networks, share the best practices/papers/ documentation on SSE issues, match the above needs, share common operational tools (ripess.eu website, socioeco.org, solecopedia and others), open an internal debate on SSE theory or approaches (social impact, meanings on profits, labor and employment concepts etc), set a working method for all these could be a good starting point.
