The Solidarity Economy Workshop (SEW) is an experiential workshop inspired by the Economy of Francesco, the international solidarity economy movement initiated by Pope Francis. The SEW seeks alternative ways to (1) organize work and build workplace democracy; (2) expand ownership; (3) promote responsible asset stewardship and capital investment; and (4) center all working people’s dignity and rights in the economy by expanding financial access for marginalized, discriminated and excluded groups.
SEW’s work includes
● Promoting and contributing to the ongoing dialog and development of social economy principles through publications, media engagement, podcasts, videos, social media, speakers, and symposia. ● Developing and supporting opportunities for student engagement with solidarity economy principles through (1) opportunities to work on SEW projects and (2) the creation and administration of the Solidarity Economy Summer Fellowship, and (3) the development of future solidarity economy educational opportunities within the Georgetown University community. ● Developing and/or leading economic activism activities.
