BALTA’s lead investigator, Mike Lewis, will be the keynote speaker at this London event. The event will explore the Solidarity Economy Movement as a practical, humane and just alternative to capitalism. It will paint a picture of the current economic conditions in Britain and present a movement of “economic organizing” that is defying the current system from the bottom up, in many countries around Europe and across the world. Panelists drawn from different sectors of the economy will discuss what they think is already happening in the UK that could be called Solidarity Economics and what kinds of cross sectoral initiatives they think could work to link their sectors to others.
The event is part of a wider European trip by Mike, who is also participating as a resource person in a training program in Greece (photo above taken in Greece) and other meetings in the UK.
