FREE Webinar: What Do We Mean by Solidarity Economy?

Beyond the business form of cooperatives, how do we know it when we see it? Solidarity economy is about values and practices as much or more than it is about types of enterprises. A group of practitioners and researchers worked together over the past year to develop a draft list of principles and practices to help the movement align and debate key tensions around investment, the nonprofit industrial complex, and other systems that divide and disorganize our work. This workshop will review the principles and open space to discuss how to support solidarity economy only leadership, projects, and networks.
