Xarxa d’Economia Solidària de Catalunya (XES)

www.economiasolidaria.org/xes-catalunya

The xarxa d’economia solidària was born in a process initiated in the mid-90s between Catalan and Brazilian cooperatives. This process continues in the Federació de Cooperatives de Treball de Catalunya and has had as remarkable appointments:

1st Latin American Meeting of Solidarity Socioeconomics (Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul) in August 1998.

1st International Meeting of Solidarity Socioeconomics (Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul) in July 2000.

Constitution of the Xarxa Global de Socioeconomia Solidaria at the 1st World Social Forum in Porto Alegre in January 2001.

With the creation of the Xarxa Global de Socioeconomia Solidaria and with the impulse of the Comissió d’Intercooperació solidària of FCT de Catalunya, a process began that culminated with the Manifesto of the xarxa d’economia solidària and the subsequent Assembly of Constitution (February 2003).
