A number of Canadian co-op leaders were recently in Havana to share their experiences developing social economy.
Canada is one of several countries sharing strategies on developing a social economy with Cuba. Eric says Cuba plans to host three social economy meetings this fall and will engage Canada, Brazil and Ecuador in active conversations.
“We can compare notes and understand that social economy is a universal concept that can play out differently in different places but we can all learn from each other,” says Eric.
“I think Cuba is a great place to centralize the discussion because they’re just starting out.”
