CCEDNet is an active member in the Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of the Social and Solidarity Economy (RIPESS).
RIPESS is an intercontinental network that connects social and solidarity economy networks throughout the world. As a network of networks, it brings together continental networks, that in turn bring together national and sectoral networks. RIPESS believes in the importance of global solidarity in order to build and strengthen an economy that puts people and planet front and center. From Lima to Quebec, from Dakar to Luxembourg, RIPESS organizes global forums every four years and is a nexus for learning, information sharing and collaboration.
RIPESS’ May 2011 newsletter was produced by CCEDNet members Ethel Côté and Yvon Poirier, along with the Chantier de l’économie sociale in Québec.
