SESP VI. On New United and Socio-economic Policies

SESP 25. 21.07. Draw up economic policies based on new data.
Promote education on solidarity, community and co-operation values as a prerequisite for consolidating the project for a new, profoundly human, political economy, especially in cultural milieus. This must be materialised by economic policies in coherence with the objectives that have been set. Develop economic policies as a means of supplying material bases for well-being and the development of individuals, peoples and nations by respecting biological, human and cultural diversity in sustainable co-operation with nature. Amplify participation mechanisms in sectors of production, money, trade and finance by trying, above all, to respect human requirements, sustainable social development and citizens’ rights. (21.07.)

SESP 26. It is required:

  • developing the means to account for them fairly, by using standards other than measurement by money,
  • giving women the means to influence decisions in economic spheres and make known, discuss and accept a new economic paradigm (02.11.)

SESP 27. Encourage the circulation of information and communication between all the actors involved in Fair trade.
It is important to compensate for the delay experienced by marginalized producers and regions in attaining the infrastructures that allow access to information, and which also allows them to use the contemporary means of communication, notably the new information and communication technologies. Consumers are an essential point of support for Fair Trade. They also have a right to full and open information. (09.03.)

SESP 28. The setting up of local, regional, national and international platforms to enable the synergies, communication and networking of actors and Fair Trade experiences to take place at these different levels.
In particular, the objectives of these platforms will be to strengthen and assess the impact of activities whilst taking into account the various objectives of Fair Trade. (09.05.)

SESP 29. The actors of Fair Trade must start to take into account a precise analysis of the effects of production modes and international exchange on the environment, when clarifying their criteria.
This will allow them to be credible in the framework of the search for sustainable development. They must participate along side environmentalist organisations in the efforts for the internalisation of environmental and social costs and the setting up of a Multilateral Accord on the Environment. (09.07.)

SESP 30. Stimulate the ethical consumption culture. Mobilize and sensibilize towards ethical consumption through education (to stimulate critical thinking and the defense of an ethics that respects and takes up responsibility in relation to all) and through information (to allow the option, the choice, the consumer’s power to discover the exploitation relations inherent to goods trading) to discuss the articulation between the relations that we establish in our work and life, and the exploitation relations that underlie the goods we purchase. Include in educational syllabi, in teacher development courses, and professional training courses, critical thinking about economy, advertising and consumption. (10.10.)

PSES.31. Promotion of the Policy of the Universal Minimum Income. It is a deeply revolutionary demand, since it allows one to differentiate between work and employment, employment and survival, income and market; it also breaks with the need to commercialise the workforce and with the myth whereby it is possible to sell individual productive capacity without selling oneself. The minimum income must be seen as social and a citizen’s right, guaranteed for everyone, from the cradle to the grave, regardless of his or her integration in the economic process. (24.01.)

SESP 32. It is necessary to find the means to introduce the components of the economy of solidarity into the “classical” companies by, for instance, a) developing the communication with the federative bodies: Chambers of Commerce, business people groups, business people guilds; b) informing their clients and consumers so as to encourage them to develop these practices; c) mobilising the trade union organisations in order to promote information on the economy of solidarity within the companies. (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 12.)

SESP 33. Bring the socially excluded and the socially accepted together, as the fervent supporters of an economy at the service of mankind. With the means and within the limits available, experiment with new kinds of businesses, where people are valued for what they are and not for what they have, where money is not an end in itself, but a way of creating more activity. (33.09.)

SESP 34. Economically support the initiatives of civil society and reduce support to the official bureaucratic apparatus. The mobilisation and participation of citizen must be supported despite its “lack of credibility” in the eyes of the investors. (Article suggested by a participant for proposal 21.)

SESP 35. Consolidate positive experiences and create sustainable systems of production, distribution and consumption among the different components of the economy of solidarity on a local, national and international scale (12.08.)
