Social Economy Stories
This piece introduces the reader to the emerging 'Social Economy.' The Social Economy stories published here are designed to provide practitioners’ perspectives on what the Social Economy means to them and their communities. The first phase of this project produced seven stories based on interviews with practitioners in Canada’s Social Economy. These “stories” capture the human face of the sector and demonstrate the Social Economy as a real movement that is addressing the social, economic and environmental challenges of today in integrative and innovative ways.
