RIPESS is a global network of continental networks committed to the promotion of Social Solidarity Economy since 1997. The member networks themselves bring together national and sectorial networks, thus ensuring strong territorial anchoring. The combined global and local scope gives RIPESS legitimacy to promote SSE, foster intercontinental cooperation, and advocate at different levels.
SSE seeks systemic transformation that goes beyond superficial change in which the root oppressive structures and fundamental issues remain intact. RIPESS members believe in the importance of the globalization of solidarity, and the ability to build and strengthen an economy that places people and planet at the center of its activities.
The key to promoting exchange between the continental members, as well as to giving visibility to the work done by the network members from different continents lies on a good communication flow in the different languages. In addition, the positioning of RIPESS as a network rooted at the local level and at the same time present at the intercontinental level in spaces of international advocacy, must be reflected through the different communication channels, as a support to strengthen our actions.
