Pro Ethical Trade Finland (PETF), Socia l& Solidarity Economy as Development Approach for Sustainability


In the 46 territories where the project will be implemented, work on development cooperation and on social and solidarity economy has been mainly carried out in two separate strands within different communities and networks. But these strands have always had common elements and the objective of this project is to bridge this gap and contribute to a coherent and comprehensive response to the universal challenges of poverty eradication and sustainable development, ensuring a decent life for all by 2030. The specific objective is to enhance the competences of development networks and social and solidarity economy networks in 46 territories concerning the role that social and solidarity economy can play in the global fight against poverty and to promote a sustainable way of living. Target groups are NGOs already working on development education, awareness raising and international cooperation, social and solidarity economy committees, local autjorityes dealing with development cooperation, and othe civil society organisations. The expected results (and activities): 1.Good practices are exchanges between and in development networks and in social and solidarity economy networks (identification of good practices, dialogue oriented workshops, video reportage) 2. Competences of European NGOs and public institutions on the linkage between social and solidarity economy and the fight against poverty are enhanced (trainings, local events, international meetings, advocacy and lobbying activities) 3. Public awareness of European citizens on the linkage between social and solidarity economy and fight against poverty will be raised starting from 2015, European Year of Development (tours of speakers from developing countries, interactive online map and smartphone application, film contest, media campaign)
