RIPESS Europe – Solidarity Economy Europe aims to proactively exchange and undertake shared actions that can expand and improve the visibility of Social and Solidarity economy.  The network aims to link social solidarity actors and organisations at European level, to promote alternative ways of producing, consuming, saving and exchanging in order to build more just economic relations and solidarity-based development.

By joining the network, you will help strengthen the visibility of your own organisation at European level and will also allow you to share your hands-on experience with others. It will also allow to build shared projects, develop collective intelligence and strengthen the common voice of Solidarity Economy in Europe.


Membership is open to all SSE organisations who wish to join the network. All you need to do is to fill in the registration form and agree to the network’s Charter.  All new memberships are validated by the next General assembly following an application. (C.f. the Statute, article 7). There is a yearly membership fee of 100 euro, which must be paid before the General Assembly.

We look forward to welcoming you as members.
