Welcome to the Erasmus plus KA2 ‘Community Catalyst for Transformative Economies’ project!

If you are here, it means that you are part of an initiative or an organization that operates, or wishes to operate, in the field of Transformative Economies.

We are currently living through the devastating consequences of a global extractive economic model. Change is inevitable. We need to re-imagine and create space for emergent alternatives that can respond to these challenges.

This form serves as a community based assessment on active initiatives within the territory which will support the development of the Community Catalyst project and the dissemination of its results.

Through introducing you to the topics we prepare the ground for a conversation to go deeper into the transformative processes we are part of.

According to your availability and time, you can decide to fill the form individually or to organize a collective moment with the people you collaborate with.

The project also foresees training and events, we’ll keep you updated on that!

Thanks for joining the Catalyst Community!

Transformative economies, is a unifying concept of those proposals for socio-economic transformation that point to the same horizon of inclusive and diverse economies. There are four movements of movements that, hybridizing with each other and with other proposals, are the heart of the virtuous circle of transforming economies:

The Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), with fair trade and ethical finance, built on the foundations of cooperativism and the construction of social markets, hybridizing the traditional social economy with new practices of self-organization and democratization of the economy in all links to the business cycle, providing goods and services for the satisfaction of needs rather than profit.

The economy based on the Commons or Procommunes, with its three major subfamilies: urban commons, natural commons and digital commons. Common, as a third way in the way of managing resources and producing value, based on community management, breaking the state-market duality as the only visible and legitimate spaces for the production, management and allocation of resources of the economic system.

Feminist Economies, to move markets and capital out of the center of socio-economic organization and place in life and all the processes that make it possible in a sustainable way, with special importance of the economy of care and key role of women and feminized values ​​within this process.

Agroecology and the movement for Food Sovereignty, with its key role in rethinking the agri-food model as a basic piece for sustaining life, which is also rethinking our relationship with the Earth and natural cycles, and that, therefore, connects its struggle with all the struggles for the defense of the land, led by social ecology and movements such as Degrowth.
