The development of the solidarity-based economy and fair trade implies an increasing collaboration between actors and local authorities (councillors and specialists). The idea is to come together to look at least two topical issues:

* local authorities as purchasers of solidarity-based economy products: is there a political will to do so? What are the limitations? What is the regulatory framework?

* how can we work together to generate public policies for promoting the autonomous development of the solidarity-based economy and sustainable local development?


Field actors in the solidarity-based economy sector, local councillors and specialists from administrations working on the development of the solidarity-based economy in several countries. _
