Conference description:

• small scale forms of self-managed or worker controlled enterprises, e.g., in Spain, Greece or other EU countries, as well as their capacity to be scaled up and across.

• the dubious dialectics of the "solidarity economy", "sharing economy”, etc., as they present themselves in practical circumstances, e.g., within the cites of Capitalism, and in housing and other co-operatives.

• the multiple forms of “solidarity economy” beyond worker and other co-operatives…e.g., Participatory Budget initiatives, Transition Towns, Radical Cities, Ethical Banks…and whether they can find ways out of their current isolation and begin collaboration across diverse movements.
