Delegations of the European United Left (GUE / NGL) and the Greens (GREENS / EFA)  promote a meeting between various experiences of Social Solidarity Economy that are being developed by European institutions and cooperative networks in Europe for sharing experiences and best practices and reflect on the challenges this alternative booming sector faces.

This first event is held in the European Parliament in Brussels on February 26, 2015.  RIPESS Europe takes part, together with many other initiatives and national networks / experiences. A panel of experts from Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Portugal and Belgium is aimed at setting up the state of art of the Social and Solidarity Economy in each one of these countries and in Europe.

The programme of the meeting can be found here.
