INTRODUCTION TO THE « WORKGRUP 7 TASK FORCE » FORUM ASIAN ALLIANCE FOR SOLIDARITY ECONOMY (AA4SE)/PACTES LOCAUX - FRANCE.
This Forum follows the Workshop 7 at the Lux’09 Forum. Its theme: « Democratic participation and anchoring the SSE at the territorial level. » Workshop 7 was prepared by visits to regional territories and by a «collective intelligence» process of over 2 years, as part of an EU work platform, hosted by the French network Pactes Locaux, which exists since 1998(www.pactes-locaux.org). The conclusions of Workshop 7 have made « territorial anchorage» a theme of its own to prepare for the Asian Forum for Solidarity Economy in November 2009 and the International Forum for Globalization of Solidarity in 2013.
