The Forum Regional social and solidarity economy (FRESS) 2014 was in full swing in Toulouse in late 2014!  80 organisations gathered together around the common ambition to make of this moment a space of conviviality, discovery, cooperation and innovation! A successful 14th edition!

A Forum beyond frontiers!

This year again, ADEPES had the pleasure to welcome and give a space in the Forum to actors beyond the borders. XES (Xarca de Economía Solidaria) participated in several roundtables (the incubators of social innovation with the presence of Labcoop, public policy and innovation). One more step has been marked, and further meetings could be generated through this encounter!  We discussed particularly the open forum on “Innovation in the territories, to a citizen transition”. Indeed, our Catalans colleagues, Joan Ribas and Josep Maria Navarro (Fundació Desenvolupament Comunitari, both members of the XES) brought an innovative experiment in the virtuous and solidarity-driven “Social market” .
