Solidarity Economy Map and Directory


Design, Development



Live Project


The solidarity economy is grounded in principles of solidarity, equity, sustainability, participatory democracy and pluralism (meaning it’s not a one-size-fits-all model). Practices that the solidarity economy embraces include worker, consumer, producer, and housing cooperatives; fair trade, community land trusts; credit unions; social currencies; participatory budgeting; collective childcare, community gardening, community supported agriculture/seafood, and the commons movement, to name a few. There is a substantial foundation that already exists upon which to build a solidarity economy.
