Solidarity Economy Education and Resources

Solidarity Economy Workshops

If you are interested in learning about the solidarity economy, we can provide a basic training that engages participants in visioning, critical analysis of the mainstream economy and how the solidarity economy movement is building an alternative in the U.S. and all around the world. These workshops are highly participatory and draw on and draw out the many elements of the solidarity economy that exist all around us.

Online courses
