In this session, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the ways the solidarity economy—comprised of consumer, housing, and worker cooperatives, community land trusts, CSA programs, community development credit unions, and support organizations—operates in NYC. We will also explore its potential for transforming power within and across urban regions in the United States and around the world drawing on examples such as the Chantier in Montreal and Seikatsu in Japan. The session is designed to be participatory and interactive among participants who are active in these networks across diverse geographies.
