About us

About us

We support a social-ecological transformation towards a new economic model. One based on cooperation instead of competition, care instead of selfishness, and democratic forms of ownership and control.

Who we are

Today's economic model, based on maximising profit and growth at all costs, does not serve us well. Rather than ensuring a decent life for all within the means of our planet, it concentrates wealth in the hands of a privileged few and generates ever more abysmal social divisions. It destroys the ecological basis of human life on Earth and, by plundering natural resources, further deepens injustice. It also undermines democracy and entrenches power inequalities that prevent the vast majority of people from participating effectively in determining the conditions of their lives.

We therefore support a social-ecological transformation towards a new economic model. One based on cooperation instead of competition, care instead of exploitation, and democratic forms of ownership and control. We know that no one can plan such a process from the table. Because we are convinced that systemic change cannot happen without broad participation of the people and social pressure from below, we support social movements and initiatives seeking diverse changes for the better in all areas of life.

Together we seek ways to create a good life for all.

What we do

We think about and promote concepts for a social, ecological and democratic economy. We investigate the causes of social and environmental problems and seek solutions.

We network actors who want to participate in the social-ecological transformation of the economy. We promote the sharing of information and experiences between social movements, academia and the general public.

We support grassroots initiatives and collaborate with social movements working for a good life for all in different areas. We help people to organise and advocate together.
