Solidarity Economy Conference

Cooperation Humboldt and the US Solidarity Economy Network are organizing a Solidarity Economy Conference on Sept. 21 and 22. Plenary participants include Emily Kawano (US Solidarity Economy Network), Jerome Scott (US Social Forum), and Kali Akuno (Cooperation Jackson).

A solidarity economy is broadly defined as efforts to create an economy based on cooperation rather than exploitation, and that prioritizes the welfare of people and planet over profits and blind growth. The approach is grounded in a set of core principles:

  • Solidarity, cooperation, mutualism
  • Equity in all dimensions--race/ethnicity/nationality, class/gender
  • Participatory democracy
  • Sustainability
  • Pluralism
