L'économie sociale et solidaire à Strasbourg

The Social and Solidarity Economy in Strasbourg

The Social and Solidarity Economy

37% of students say they are looking for meaning in their future job! The Social Solidarity Economy sector is attracting more and more young people in Europe: 2.8 million structures and enterprises in Europe and 13.6 million paid jobs in Europe. (Source: SSE Key Figures in France and Europe - National SSE Observatory, based on Insee Clap 2015).

But what is the Social and Solidarity Economy? It is a form of entrepreneurship whose objectives are to respond to societal challenges. SSE enterprises are found in all sectors of activity. They are differentiated simply by their mode of management in a wide variety of legal forms (mutuals, associations, cooperatives, foundations and integration enterprises).
To find out more about the SSE, visit the website of the Regional Chamber of the Social and Solidarity Economy (CRESS) of the Grand Est region.

Food - equipment
Think of shopping at markets or directly from local producers, via basket distributions (such as those offered by Campus Vert Strasbourg) or farm sales ("Mangeons local"). There are also shops where you can buy in bulk. 
And don't hesitate to check out structures that recycle fridges, kettles, telephones, computers, etc. (reuse), such as Envie or the Humanis collective, other solidarity purchases are also possible in Emmaus.
