It provides weekly to 20,000 families of members-consumers a basket of organic vegetables.
The social and solidarity economy (SSE) brings together a wide range of economic initiatives which comes within neither the public sector nor the capitalist field. Claude ALPHANDERY, honorary president of France Active, has launched as part of the Laboratory of Economic and Social Solidarity, with support from the Fondation Charles Leopold Mayer for the Progress of Man, a broad reflection in this perspective that led to the report “50 proposals to change course”.
Jean-Guy HENCKEL will summarize:

- From 50 operational proposals to shift the economy as a whole.
