Building the Social and Solidarity Economy as an Alternative Model of Development

Since 1997 and every four years, the Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS) promotes the International Meeting of Social Solidarity Economy. 
Come share your practices and discuss the current challenges and ways to strengthen the Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) worldwide as a development strategy in the actual context of a global crisis of capitalism.
We will debate the identity of the SSE and its relationship with various aspects, such as: other social movements; the governments and international agencies; “Buen vivir”, degrowth and other new indicators of development; the capitalist market; governance and management; economical sustainability; social development; ecological conservation; diversity of culture, gender, race; the territories and local supply chains; consumption and society.
Besides an International Territory of SSE in Manila where products and materials will be presented and sold and self-managed activities will be offered by participants from the ve continents, the debates will be organised in 4 Themes:
  1. Global vision of SSE
  2. SSE experiences in the territories
  3. Global networking and organizing
  4. Communication and visibility of SSE

You can already contribute to the preparatory debates in our virtual forums!
