Campaigns We're Organizing
Social Economy represents 10% of EU’s GDP – Social Economy Europe has 3.2M members. We’re bringing people together to build more models of mutualism. It’s already working in places like Quebec in Canada and Emilia Romana in Italy.
Own the Metrics
We’re helping to define THE metrics of choice in our economy – no greenwashing, no virtue signaling. So far, 460 enterprises have signed up.
Metrics, rules, and algorithms are used by companies to figure out how to allocate their capital: financial, human, social, and climate/natural. We’re working toward giving human and social elements a seat at the table. Profitability is essential so we can afford to support our own values.
