As you can see, the RIPESS website has been recently restructured. It is now more dynamic, more active, more complete. As expected, the goal is to keep it alive through the SSE practitioners with their eyes, their voice, their projects … Come in and browse.
RIPESS (Intercontinental Network for the Promotion of the Social Solidarity Economy), as a network of networks, works on the visibility and strengthening of the various local SSE initiatives worldwide. That’s why the ripess.org website was changed to aggregate automatically and in real-time news from dozens of web sites listed by SSE practitioners in the 5 continents. You can see the current list of news sources on http://www.ripess.org/category/feeds-en/?lang=en .
Another change is that the RIPESS website has now a SSE TV in 3 languages (English, French, Spanish [+Portuguese])! By collecting existing Youtube and Vimeo videos indicated by SSE activists, we gathered in one place a video-gallery about SSE worldwide. Here you will find documentaries, trailers, seminars, testimonies, and more … http://www.ripess.org/videos-en/?lang=en .
