Segment 2: Citizen innovation in consumption

Currently, consumption is one of the fields of wider experimentation, which is growing faster in solidary economy and which is a fundamental area for achieving structural economic changes that go through a transformation of current lifestyles. The experiences which rethink consumption of everyday life offer a wealth of extraordinary value, although they are not exempt from difficulties and important challenges which we will try to approach.

What you will find in this segment:

  • Visibility of existing cooperative initiatives in consumption.
  • Promotion of their replicability and the creation of opportunities for mutual learning.
  • Connection between solidary economy initiatives and a citizenship that is seeking more ethical alternatives in their habits of consumption.
  • Creation of new levels of intercooperation promoting scalability of projects.
