Our objective: Social and solidarity-based organisations fully recognised as players in the digital and technological transition in Europe
The power of social utility actors is to implement effective solutions to social and environmental challenges. But their technological transition is poorly supported, even though the innovation that is recognised and financed is essentially technological innovation.
The power of technological innovation actors is to accelerate the time and efficiency of organisations. But technological innovation is only of value if it produces an improvement in the well-being of all, within the limits of the planet’s natural resources.
These two “worlds” (technological and social) rarely intersect.
It is essential today to bring forces together to respond to the major global challenges.
We believe that the actors working for the Common Good must be given the means to develop their skills and to invest in order to increase the efficiency of their models and services thanks to technological potential.
This is a sine qua non for accelerating societal change in Europe and strengthening the raison d’être of the European Union.
- Play collectively at European level by creating a network dedicated to the defence of the technological interests of the actors of the social and solidarity economy in Europe
- Encourage technological philanthropy: the methods, economic efficiency and resources of tech companies can be put at the service of the general interest, and social and environmental skills can feed technological innovation.
- Enlight non (for) profit tech models that put fairness, environmental impact, sovereignty, democracy, respect of data privacy at the core of their mission
To bring together, engage in dialogue and collaborate the actors committed to the technological transition of non-profit organisations working and innovating for the general interest throughout Europe.
To build collective actions and representation of the technological interests of social and solidarity economy actors at the European level.
