There is a growing global movement to build an economy and society that puts people and planet at its heart. We will explore how the solidarity economy is building a common vision across differences of nation, culture, history, politics, and economy. Participants will engage as learners and teachers and will come out of this participatory process with a deeper understanding of the solidarity economy in the U.S. and around the world.
