Barcelona, 23 July – The Solidarity Economy Network of Catalonia, the Department of Labour, Social Affairs and Families of the Generalitat and the Barcelona City Council invite you to the press conference for the presentation of the World Social Forum of Transformative Economies. Barcelona will thus become the world capital of economies of change with an event that should bring together nearly 10,000 people from 5 continents in spring 2020.

Barcelona was chosen by the international solidarity economy network RIPESS and the World Social Forum to host this event in view of Catalonia’s history linked to the cooperative movement and social movements.
