Can we use complementary/alternative currencies alongside value chains to develop a ‘virtuous cycle’ that supports solidarity economy growth regionally and beyond? We look at how complementary currency is used in local contexts to support community businesses, as well as a snapshot of developing cooperative/solidarity economy value chains, and we’ll brainstorm on how we can use these tools together to integrate, sustain and grow businesses and other institutions within solidarity economies. In addition, this workshop will attempt to map the landscape of the solidarity economy in New York City.
