About this product
- DescriptionSocial ecomy organizations such as cooperatives, n-profits, mutual benefit groups, foundations, and n-governmental organizations are uniquely positioned to respond t only to emerging social and ecomic needs, but also to new collective aspirations. In Quebec, for instance, a pioneering social ecomy system has been developed that is recognized worldwide for its ability to foster invative solutions to ecomic disparity and sustainability issues. In the wake of a global crisis that has emphasized the growing gap between ecomic and social concerns, what can other regions gain from this model? Through robust theoretical and in-depth empirical studies, this book offers the first opportunity to English-language readers to learn about the Quebec experience of a social ecomy system. It takes stock of recent developments in the province relating to policy planning, governance, financing, local development, and legal frameworks. Invation and the Social Ecomy also emphasizes this system's potential for exploring alternative practices of production, consumption, and distribution that can foster social transformation.
