Summary :

People in Europe and around the world are living in an era of multiple crises, in which education and employment are challenged by great social inequalities, unsustainable technological developments and a dysfunctional economic and financial system, leading to exploitation, precarious employment and worsening living conditions, due to climate change, pollution and depletion of natural resources.

Decent living conditions for everyone across the globe are not compatible with our prevailing economic path: a new social paradigm is needed and Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) can play a vital role in making cooperation and community wellbeing the foundations of our life, rather than competition and individual profits.
