Since 2002, in all of France, a “Cooperation in education week” takes place: debates on the cooperative practices, cooperative games, contests… the goal is to show the cooperative practices school and outside schools, to introduce students to the cooperation within the learning of the democratic debate and familiarize parents, students and teachers about school cooperation issues. Tools are available on the website of Coop FR: support courses, game, tools, etc. This year, it took place from 14 to 19 March 2016.
Starting from 2017, this week will turn into “The Social Solidarity Economy school week” at the initiative of the ESPER (Economy social partner of the School of the Republic), an association which brings together nearly fifty organizations from the world of education and the ESS.
“The SUSY project brings together and shows you examples of the solidarity economy, so that people involved and interested in solidarity-based initiatives can network and interact, and we can share and open up the idea of the solidarity economy to more and more people. By collecting and sharing these examples, we aim to gain new insights into the solidarity economy. We hope to enable reflection and discussion in order to discover and embark on more and more future opportunities and possibilities for the solidarity economy. At the same time – like other initiatives in the solidarity economy – we are building links with political decision makers so to increase their support for an alternative way of doing things.
WE are a network of 26 associations in 23 European countries enhancing the competences of local actors that are engaged in the social and solidarity economy, supporting a new paradigm of economic development in order to fight poverty and to diffuse an equitable and sustainable way of living.”
