FESC, online event

Online meeting

In this 9th edition of the FESC we wish to show how the SSE is contributing to the urgent and essential eco-social transition that the planet needs, and to reflect on the challenges that we must overcome in order to contribute even more.


The extractivist androcentric model, based on capitalist forms of domination, is the main cause of climate change and existing social and environmental injustice, affecting the world’s population in very unequal ways at an intersection of vulnerabilities. At this point we cannot question or remain passive in the face of the biocidal nature of this model, which destroys entire ecosystems and unbalances a symbiotic natural order on which we depend. The COVID19 pandemic that has shaken us this year is a painful example of the consequences of this imbalance.


We need new and other forms of action – creative, inspiring, collective – that allow us to face up to the socio-ecological crisis we are experiencing and with which we can carry out the productive, reproductive and care activities we need, without damaging our natural environment, and recognising and respecting the different forms of life.


We appeal to the need to adopt urgent measures in the face of the increasingly frequent natural disasters and the ever more evident environmental and climatic injustice, and we recognise the SSE as a key agent in this search for collective responses and in this proposal towards green post-capitalism. It is time to take a stand: environmentalism or barbarism.


For this reason, at this year’s FESC we wish to make known the different ways in which the SSE is moving towards an eco-social transition, i.e. what projects, tools, mechanisms, etc. are being developed in the context of the solidarity economy that incorporate the ecological perspective in order to respond to the climate and socio-environmental crisis that we are facing. We encourage you, therefore, to present proposals that allow us to share how the eco-social transition is being carried out within the following areas:


PRODUCTION – Issues focused from the perspective of producers (products and services of the primary, secondary and tertiary economic sectors, management issues, etc.)


CONSUMPTION – Issues from the perspective of female consumers (housing, energy, mobility, food, textiles, responsible consumption, ethical finance, consumer cooperatives, health, etc.)


REPRODUCTIVE – Issues related to the sustainability of life and care, the feminisation of management, ecofeminism, etc.


CAMPAIGN AND MOBILIZATIONS – Issues related to human rights, ecological struggles, social justice, sustainability and value change.


THE PUBLIC AND THE COMMON – Issues that address needs for the eco-social transition that we can solve without going through the market, the public and the common: public policies, community management, common (natural, digital…)


OTHER – Everything not included in the other areas and related to this year’s theme.
