Saw-B (SawB)

www.saw-b.be/spip/index.php

SAW-B, Solidarity of the Walloon and Brussels Alternatives, is a pluralistic federation of social economy. It brings together more than 120 social enterprises in Wallonia and Brussels (cooperatives, associations, research centers, etc.) active in renewable energies, solidarity finance, fair trade, local services, recycling, training, etc. Among our members, we also have about ten federations and networks. That’s 15,000 workers.

SAW-B seeks to create a movement for an economic and social alternative. Three tracks are thus pursued:

  • Defend and represent the social economy at the regional, Belgian and European levels.

  • Support and promote social economy projects to create new businesses or develop existing ones.

  • Finally, to make known and to provoke a critical reflection about the economic alternatives, with the workers of the enterprises of social economy and with the public in general.
