Brief Description: The workshop focuses on the contribution of solidarity economy (SSE) to a degrowth perspective.
What are strategies for solidarity economy as an approach to economic democracy and how can linkages between various actors be strengthened? The workshop aims at fostering a process of strategic reflection taking into account practical international experiences from SSE as well asCOVID-19 related challenges, and asks: "What are elements of a theory of change towards a degrowth solidarity economy?"
Methodology and expected results: This workshop follows a similar one that took place during the Degrowth 2020 online conference. The goal of the workshop is to collect experiences with and ideas for strategies to foster solidarity economy on the international level, especially regarding South-North relations. These strategies should converge towards a mid-range "theory of change"
