Social and solidarity economy
We promote the social and solidarity economy as a mechanism for a sustainable development
At Barcelona Activa, we encourage and strengthen entrepreneurial initiatives, organisations and companies that adhere to the principles of the social and solidarity economy (SSE) in the city, from the perspective of socio-economic innovation.
We help to promote and consolidate cooperative, community-based, and transformational projects by providing support and training to achieve sustainable local development. Our aim is to raise awareness of the SSE, helping to implement it, and ensuring that the projects we promote have an impact on the economy as a whole. InnoBA is the reference facility for ESS organizations.
