  • Not to maximize profits, but a comprehensive sustainability: economic, environmental and social.
  • Environmental sustainability. Make a balanced use of resources.
  • Community and territory compromise. To be part of the territory and community, to participate in it in a positive way.
  • Decent work conditions. Safe and healthy working environment.

What is Soceania?

Soceania is an open platform to promote products and services from the social solidarity economy. It also focuses on added values like landscapes and building links between producers and consumers.

One of the main demands among producers is visibility, to strengthen dissemination so that consumers can reach their products. We want to help as we can to link consumers with producers who are working within equity, respect, and all the values of the social solidarity, and to bring new producers and consumers. And of course enjoying the view along the way, with fabulous landscapes instead of plastic seas.

Every time we buy we decide which kind of economy we want to support, we hope Soceania can help making the decision.

Who is Soceania?

Soceania is a network of individual people interested in social solidarity economy who believe in the potential of this producer-consumer relationship as an alternative economic model.
