What changes does this project inspire?

One of Europe’s largest research programmes on Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), “SUSY” involved 32 countries and conducted a comparative analysis of 55 SSE good practices. Overall, it mapped almost 1000 good practices in innovative agriculture, renewable energy provision, recovered enterprises, ethical finance, responsible tourism, fair trade, critical consumption, re-use, recycling and redistribution, as well as the circular economy.
Thousands of EU citizens participated in dialogue-oriented workshops and trainings, events and speaker tours. 12 000 attended film festivals around the topic of a social and solidarity economy. Over 120 Local Authorities, media, members of Parliaments and of the European Parliament were engaged in SSE issues.
