Start Small: Why Social Designers Should Pick Low-Hanging Fruit First

Headlines state that design thinking is the key to innovation and that opportunities abound for creating positive social change. Amongst this ambitious rhetoric, it’s tempting to think we can tackle big, global problems all at once. Fundação EDP. Announcing a new call for forward-thinking research on social innovation.

„Green Care“ lässt ländliche Regionen aufblühen

Das Projekt erweitert die herkömmliche agrarische Produktpalette der LandwirtInnen um pädagogische, therapeutische und pflegerische Produkte sowie soziale Arbeit und leistet damit einen Beitrag zu Bildung, Arbeit und Gesundheit der Bevölkerung. Das innovative Sozialprojekt läuft bis zum Jahr 2013 mit dem Ziel, Green Care künftig österreichweit auf aktiven landwirtschaftlichen Betrieben umzusetzen, um neben bestehenden Sparten wie Tourismus (Urlaub am Bauernhof) und Direktvermarktung (Gutes vom Bauernhof) auch eine soziale Sparte aufzubauen. Dieses neue und ökonomisch nachhaltige Zukunftsfeld soll dazu beitragen, die einzigartige landwirtschaftliche Struktur Österreichs aufrechtzuerhalten.

L'économie sociale. Une alternative au capitalisme par Thierry Jeantet

Pourtant, au vu de ses résultats en termes d'inégalités, de gâchis écologique, de déni de démocratie économique et sociale, la quête de modes d'organisation alternatifs est plus que jamais à l'ordre du jour. Thierry Jeantet plaide, dans cet ouvrage, en faveur de l'économie sociale, un terme qui désigne les coopératives, les associations et les mutuelles, des formes d'entreprises qui ont en commun de poursuivre d'autres buts que la recherche du profit et de fonctionner sur un mode démocratique. L'auteur montre comment l'économie sociale peut répondre aux principaux défis auxquels nous sommes aujourd'hui confrontés.

On lui reprochera cependant de décrire le secteur tel qu'il voudrait qu'il soit et non tel qu'il est. L’économie sociale, une réponse au capitalisme financier ?, par Yan de Kerorguen. Une banque sociale, la Shore Bank, qui veut changer le monde en ouvrant l’accès au crédit aux populations défavorisées des quartiers de Chicago, Detroit ou Cleveland ; une société coopérative, Autocool, qui propose un service d’autopartage de véhicules, accessible vingt-quatre heures sur vingt-quatre et sept jours sur sept, grâce à un réseau de stations urbaines de proximité.

L’économie sociale, une réponse au capitalisme financier ?, par Yan de Kerorguen

Une collectivité locale qui lance une coopérative pour accompagner les projets de création d’épiceries solidaires dans trois communes de l’agglomération périgourdine... Pas de doute. Les entreprises sociales et solidaires suscitent des vocations. Les responsables politiques, qui ont longtemps ignoré, méprisé ou minimisé leur rôle en les reléguant au rayon des « accidents de l’histoire », les appellent désormais en renfort, en particulier sur le terrain du développement durable et de la solidarité. Une présence sur tous les continents Mais qu’est-ce au juste que l’économie sociale ? L'économie sociale, une réponse au capitalisme financier ?

« Réconcilier l’économie et la société »...

L'économie sociale, une réponse au capitalisme financier ?

Ce principe inscrit au fronton de l’économie sociale revient ŕ la mode. Avec l’échec du capitalisme financiarisé et la mise en cause des politiques prônant l’individualisme et le court terme, l’esprit associatif, mutualiste et coopératif est de plus en plus fréquemment évoqué. Sa mise en œuvre concrčte par des milliers d’entreprises met en lumičre les paradoxes d’un modčle oů coexistent maraîchers solidaires et banques d’affaires, expérimentation et refondation du capitalisme.

Os Nós da Economia Social

A clarificação dos conceitos e práticas propostas para este Seminário levar-nos-á a compreender alguns Nós da Economia Social em Portugal, com o contributo teórico e prático de oradores convidados. Apresentação « MISIE. Este Ciclo de Estudos resulta de uma parceria entre a Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação e a Faculdade de Economia da Universidade de Coimbra e decorre de uma reflexão aprofundada sobre as práticas de intervenção social e sobre a necessidade, reconhecida nessa reflexão, de sustentar a intervenção em projectos inovadores e numa dinâmica de acção empreendedora. O Mestrado em “Intervenção Social, Inovação e Empreendedorismo” visa aperfeiçoar e ampliar a capacidade de compreensão, prospetiva e holística, da ação, dos processos de mudança, dos paradigmas de desenvolvimento e de intervenção social em contextos multidimensionais, bem como potencializar a capacidade de iniciativa e as competências de identificação e aproveitamento de oportunidades de desenvolvimento e de gestão/criação e avaliação de recursos e respostas.

Orçamento do Estado para 2012A lei orçamental contém diversas disposições relativas à economia social, destacando-se a revogação do Estatuto Fiscal Cooperativo, passando os benefícios fiscais cooperativos a ficar concentrados no artº 66º-A, do Estatuto dos Benefícios Fiscais.

Os ramos cooperativos antes abrangidos por redução de taxa – comercialização, crédito e serviços ( utentes ) passam para o regime geral de IRC. Por outro lado, desapareceram normas importantes para a compreensão e inserção fiscal das cooperativas, como sejam as referentes aos princípios gerais de aplicação ( artº 2º, EFC ) e ao enquadramento fiscal da participação económica nos resultados nas cooperativas de produtores ( artº 16º, EFC ). Assim, o regime fiscal cooperativo ficou estabelecido nos termos seguintes: Capítulo XI Benefícios às cooperativas Artigo 66.º-A Cooperativas. Conselho Nacional para a Economia Social.

Social Economy enterprises and organisations are economic and social players active in all sectors of society; they are set up to respond to people’s needs. They are characterised principally by their aims and their methods: a different way of doing business which continuously associates the general interest, economic performance and democratic operation.

Www.socialeconomy.eu.org/IMG/pdf/sven_giegold_mep_-_malte_arhelger-3.pdf. Social Economy - Small and medium sized enterprises (SME) - Enterprise and Industry. A significant proportion of Europe's economy is organised to make profits not only for investors.

The so-called Social Economy, including cooperatives, mutual societies, non-profit associations, foundations and social enterprises, provides a wide range of products and services across Europe and generates millions of jobs. When policy-makers work to improve the business environment in Europe, they need to ensure that their efforts take account of the specific characteristics of enterprises, particularly SMEs, in the Social Economy.

Introduction Companies set up to make a profit for their owners are not the only form of enterprise. In many areas of economic activity, groups of individuals have got together to set up their own structure to promote their own or general public interests. Common Characteristics of Social Economy Enterprises They contribute to a more efficient market competition and encourage solidarity and cohesion.
