A brief overview:
The solidarity economy is an economic system that seeks to support human rights, promote democracy, and maintain the sanctity of the environment. In this economy, people do not compete to outdo each other or exploit others’ work for their own benefit. Instead, people freely share resources, cooperate, and collaborate because society recognizes that the well-being of one person depends on the well-being of all. Progress is measured by the nation’s health and happiness, not necessarily by gross domestic product (GDP).
