These principles are shared in the charter of the group.
« Plateformes en Communs » has 4 main objectives :
« Plateformes en Communs » has been created in 2017 by La Coop des Communs, a French association which gathers cutting-hedge thinkers and producers of commons : researchers, activists, civil servants, entrepreneurs from the social economy. Its ambition is to connect the Commons’ theories to the century of experience of the actors of the social economy in terms of cooperation.
We are convinced that an alliance and a reciprocal relationship between SSE and commons will foster the collaborative economy’s development. Together, SSE and commons are able to constitute a solid foundation for sustainable development – based on a combination of different perspectives on economy – instead of just providing short-term solutions.
La Coop des Communs leads the Co-Communs group, who wants to promote commons with the support of Cooperatives, mutuality, municipalities and Unions in Europe.
