During these exceptional times of confinement to try and halt the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, our societies continue to face the everyday challenge of taking care of life amidst these uncertain times, whilst not losing sight of the immediate future in a world that is not the same and is experiencing rapid transformation.
The Covid-19 has unleashed an unprecedented health, social, political and economic emergency worldwide.

All of this is due to the fact that capitalism places profit and self-interest at the centre of its activity. That is why transformative economies know that we are the only viable response to these crises, because we put people, the environment, life and care at the centre of our activity.

The world is literally burning because of the ecological, economic and social crisis caused by a predatory capitalism, and a neoliberal system generating inequalities, concentrating wealth in 1% of the world's population at the detriment of the impoverishment of the 99 % remaining.
