We accept the challenge: Transforming Economies facing the Covid-19 crisis

Proceso reto


The organizations, networks and entities participating in the FSMET process can register their transformative initiatives: struggles, campaigns, projects, policies and practices that show the search for transforming economies, in the broadest sense. We look for initiatives that respond to the great global challenges from concrete and localized practices.

We will group the challenges into the following categories:

  • Sociopolitical challenges:

    • Transforming the economy: New reproductive and care model. Plural and inclusive social markets. Economic democracy.

    • Transformation of power: Public policies. Institutions.

    • Transformation of the political field. Which organizations can combat the capital-life contradiction? Strategies to come together and gain strength through sustained mobilization. Local and global movements

  • Environmental challenges:

    • Transformation of the energy model

    • Transformation of the agri-food model

    • Transformation of the extractivist model

  • Techno-scientific challenges:

    • Transformation of the educational and research model

    • Construction of digital commons, platform cooperativism procomun vs unicorn

    • What hardware and software is needed for a free culture society?

What is the initiative registry for?

The different fields to be detailed in the registry of initiatives will serve to be able to enter a directory that makes existing transformative initiatives visible. Those that receive more support in the will have an opportunity for exchange as a sponsorship - north / south, south / north - that guarantees knowledge and mutual aid, with the necessary human and economic resources, for the corresponding exchanges. The sponsored initiatives will participate in the FSMET 2020 program in the month of October, subsequently joining a digital publication and opening a round of financing with global ethical finance actors.
