Our mission & our vision
Our Mission is to contribute to the development of social and solidarity economy.
Our Vision is a world, consisting of people with awakened consciousness, intensive social interest, environmental responsibility, and ethical values, such as solidarity, justice, and freedom.. A world, where the citizens of the society share knowledge and information, they make collective decisions through participatory leadership processes, plan and implement sustainable solutions to social and environmental problems, fairly exchange local products and services; thus, encouraging the local development. Also, they create conditions for sustainable development and acquire the model of social and solidarity economy, which is based on the principle of social value maximization.
Our name consists of the words “solidarity”, because solidarity is the fundamental value which characterizes the developed relationships among social and solidarity economy actors, and “mission”, as each social entrepreneur is dedicated to resolve a social or an environmental problem.
