Social and Solidarity Economy in Higher Education

Award-winning project

Our team gained recognition as facilitators for this project by the International Association of Facilitators silver award.

The project, part funded by Erasmus Mundus, was based on the premise that if universities are to remain relevant to society they need to review their ethos, purpose and curricula. It was conceived, co-designed and co-facilitated by Catalina Quiroz-Niño, co-founder of Empower and visiting fellow of York St John University.

The aim of the project was to enhance the studies and practices of the social/solidarity economy within formal, non-formal and informal education.

Its main output was a handbook designed by UK and international academics and practitioners.
