The Ripess Europe Scientific Committee is launching an international webinar on solidarity economy on the different continents. In this difficult period, it seems particularly important to strengthen the relations among the initiatives and the people active in the solidarity economy as a global movement. Hence the scientific committee of RIPESS Eu, in partnership with FMSH Paris (Maison des Sciences de l’Homme de Paris / “Human Science House of Paris”), decided to launch this webinar as an opportunity to build a dedicated space to nurture this international conversation. This webinar is dedicated to sharing common questions and mutual information, analysis and perspectives about the development of Solidarity Economy on the different continents. It is addressed to everyone interested in those topics : actors and collective initiatives, researchers and students, public institutions representatives. There is no need to register, you are welcome to join.

The opening session will focus on the International Manifesto for the Solidarity Economy.

Following that opening, the annual discussion will be organized in two sequences. The first round will deal with Solidarity Economy and Feminism, following a pace of a 2 hours webinar every second Monday of each monthfrom 2pm to 4pm CET until September 2021. The second round will deal with the development and current situation of solidarity economy on each continentduring the second semester.
