The Meyrin Economic Forum (MEF) is the largest regional economic forum in the Lake Geneva region. It brings together more than 600 business leaders from all over the region and numerous public, institutional and private partner organisations. This year, it focuses on the Social and Solidarity Economy!
Social, solidarity and ecological economy, concretely? How can I make it compatible with the reality of my company?
Speech by Christophe Dunand, co-founder of the Geneva Chamber of SSE - 13 March at 10am
"The social and solidarity economy is now recognized as a pioneer in sustainability (finance, agriculture, housing, etc.). Faced with ecological emergencies, particularly climate change, all Geneva businesses must make the transition or will no longer have any reason to exist. I will quickly present why the SSE is paving the way for the sustainable economy of tomorrow and how it is a matter of sharing all good practices with all companies that make the transition choice. Cooperating to build Geneva's sustainable economy quickly together will be a central argument of my conference".
The forum is free, there will be many interventions, debates and opportunities for inspiring encounters.

The REDE PORTUGUESA DE ECONOMIA SOLIDÁRIA (RedPES) invites all organizations, initiatives, collectives and people who are involved and interested in alternative ways of organizing the production, consumption, distribution and exchange of goods, knowledge and services guided by cooperation and the sustainability of resources.
Everywhere, experiences arise that respond to the needs of communities in a socially just, ecologically sustainable and economically viable way, generating abundance and well-being.
New cooperatives and associations, short agri-food circuits, social currencies, collaborative forms of work, are examples of solidarity initiatives that are emerging here and there to show that "another world is possible".
In Portugal, this ecosystem exists but it is scattered and disjointed, and there is a lack of knowledge about the different initiatives and how they can collaborate. In this event we want to know, talk and reflect about what exists, exchange experiences and build a stronger base of cooperation between people and organizations that are practicing solidarity economy in Portugal and beyond.
