Alongside a very agile globalization-critical movement many different projects of a solidarity economy gain importance. Our hope regards the strengthening and interlinking of all iniatives which combine critical theory and practical projects. They all seek collective ways aiming at sociopolitical, ecological and cultural change.

The range of solidarity economy should be widely applied – respective a solidarity as mutual support and an economy, which orientates itself at human needs and not the other way round. We do want not to narrow down the idea `solidarity economy´ in order to give enough space to the very different concepts and approaches and making controversial discussions possible. Here it is the critics of the genderrelations, of the boundary-regimes, capitalism and/or destruction of the natural environment and also to get a selfreflexive perspective upon solidarity projects, for instance:

selfmanaged rooms and companies, old and new cooperatives, alternative forms of habitation, appropriation of rooms and resources, communes, companies with social targets, initiatives for right of residence, barter rings, regional currencies, spaces for women and feminism projects, free of charge shops, alternative institutions of financing, fair trade, solidarian and crosscultural gardens, public couisine, agricultural selfmarketing, ecovillages, OpenSource, alternative learning institutes, knowledge sharing, basic income, and much more of this kind.
