Responsibility for mainstreaming sustainable development
Informing and Influencing the Transition to Oikonomy of supply/value chains of solidarity-based community enterprises
Benjamin, JR Quinones, Federation of People’s Sustainable Development Cooperative (FPSDC), September 2016
FPSDC, along with civil society partners, established the Asian Solidarity Economy Council (ASEC) in 2013 with the aim of informing and influencing the transition to oikonomy of solidarity-based community enterprises in the Philippines. Using the case of FPSDC’s community-based enterprises as an example of transition to Oikonomy in action, case studies and presentations were made at numerous regional fora and events. As an outcome, a Charter of Social Solidarity Economy was drafted based on Universal Declaration of Human Responsibility principles. The Charter has now been adopted by numerous ASEC partners and proposed to be used as an advocacy tool to ASEAN.
