A map of SSE solutions on socioeco.org

Mapping is currently very popular, with new maps appearing every day, such as those mapping community-supported agriculture and the transition initiatives map. The ideal, if fairly unlikely, solution would of course be to gather them all together on a world map with clear categories where users could select the elements they are looking for. The question is, what is the purpose of these types of maps? Their main aim is to give visibility to the things we wish to show and multiply points on the map to highlight the alternatives that are proliferating worldwide, but that often remain in the shadows.

Socioeco.org: more than 400 videos on SSE
January 8, 2016

The resource website for SSE, Socioeco.org has already gathered more than 400 videos on social and solidarity economy: experiences of Amaps, Co-housing cooperatives, factories recovered by their workers, or training videos on cooperative enterprises are some examples, but also interventions by scholars and activists such as Jean-Louis Laville, Jean Gadrey, Ben Quiñones, José Luis Coraggio, and many others. To find them, simply do a search in the search engine by putting ‘amap’, “cooperative”, “Jean-Louis Laville“, etc. As usual, the videos are in the 5 languages of the website. Help us identify new ones that you consider to be important and make it possible to enrich the fields of knowledge of the SSE, by writing to Françoise Wautiez: fwautiez@socioeco.org.

Socioeco.org: legal frameworks and laws promoting SSE
November 11, 2015

socioecoThe resource website for SSE, socioeco.org, has created a page on Legislation in favour of SSE, whether national or regional, framework laws or more sectoral ones. This page is classified by country. You will find these pieces of legislation on the Legislation page in the folder legal recognition and institutional support for the Social Solidarity Economy.

If you know about legislation in favour of the SSE in your country, please send them to Françoise Wautiez (fwautiez@socioeco.org), so that they enrich the site’s references and, hopefully, inspire legislators for other acts of this kind throughout Europe.

Raising the profile of the Social and Solidarity Economy
April 23, 2015

The socioeco.org website is celebrating its third anniversary, and to mark the event, here is a brief overview of the project. Socioeco has continued to grow, with over 3,500 analysis documents, including 500 case studies, more than 1,000 identified publications and almost 180 SSE training courses. The site has five working languages, with two others currently being prepared. It is also progressing in terms of the number of visitors, which has tripled in three years, some of them surprised that so much is being written about the SSE. This was the very challenge we set ourselves: raising the profile of the wealth of initiatives, approaches, themes, authors, public policies and legislation that are out there. But what exactly does this SSE resource site offer?

  • information on SSE-related events throughout the world with a national or international scope;
  • a wide variety of documents: from learning tools in written or audio-visual form to academic research, including theses, in-depth articles, book reviews, speeches at events, proposals and charters;
  • summaries, titles, authors, etc. of the publications linked to SSE themes;
  • SSE training courses throughout the world;
  • the ESSglobal map, showing you the location of the initiatives near to where you live, already developed for three regions, France, Brazil and Quebec, and soon to be available for many other countries.

As everyone already using the site knows, all these resources are available in five languages: French, Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian. Catalan and German will be added in 2015.
