INAISE (solidarity finance) and NENA (Australia) join RIPESS Intercontinental

Just after the GSEF 2018 Forum, the International RIPESS Board of Directors was held, composed of two delegates per continent and representatives of international members such as Urgenci. It should be noted that RIPESS and the GSEF practice cross-membership and that the collaborative links between the two entities have been consolidated. Laurence Kwark, General Delegate of the GSEF, had been invited to participate in the first morning of the meeting. The face-to-face Board of Directors is an annual high point during which the RIPESS strategy is developed at the international level in line with the realities of the continents, which are all different from each other. It is also an opportunity to put faces on the names that circulate on the lists during virtual consultations, an essential part of the network’s cohesion.

One of the elements of complexity is linked to the geographical and demographic scale of the continents and the principle of creating sub-continents (particularly in Asia) to better achieve the objective of spreading practices has been considered. Two new members are joining: INAISE (International Network of SSE Investors) and NENA (New Economy Network Australia) as new focal point for Oceania. A partnership with Quartiers du Monde has also been established.

On communication, an important decision was also been adopted: bringing all websites together within the intercontinental Ripess website, which will allow the use of common grammar and semantics, economies of scale and better intercommunication. Gabriel Boichat, the new RIPESS communication officer, broadcast the two events extensively on social networks.

RIPESS has a new Executive Secretary

Laure Jongejans, European Citizen (French-Dutch, with Spanish origin) has an international career of 15 years, including 10 years spent with conviction in the field of Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) in Europe, Latin America (andean region), in West and Central Africa and Maghreb.

She oriented her career towards this way of “doing economy” for the first time from the international cooperation´s field, research activities, consulting, and subsequently she took part in a Mediterranean cooperative SSE platform (iesMed), finally entering a Catalan cooperative which promotes SSE and local development (Calidoscoop).

Taking over the responsibility of Eva Mascolo-Fortin who lives in Quebec, Laure exercises her role as Executive Secretary of RIPESS intercontinental network, from Catalonia, more specifically from Barcelona, possibly a “future European capital” of the SSE?
