Verein für Solidarökonomie (VSÖK)

The ksoe (Catholic Social Academy of Austria) provides adult education for a socio-ecological transformation in the areas of alternative/solidarity economy, leadership and participation and social justice. All research and practical work is carried out on the basis of Catholic Social Teaching, from an ecumenical and feminist perspective, oriented to humanist, social and appropriate structures, fair distribution and participation of everyone.

Participation and empowerment are key words for ksoe work and it encourages people to authentically and responsibly seize power to shape the future in or- ganizations and elsewhere. The ksoe also support the development of an open culture of dialogue and promote the implementation of participatory structures and processes in organizations and enterprises – in times of strategic, structural and/or cultural change.
