(23 May 2016) – Jean-Pierre Pellegrin (AEIDL) reports on the recent RTES (Réseau des collectivités territoriales pour une économie solidaire / Local authorities for the social economy) meeting.


Two years after the adoption in France of a framework law assigning general interest missions to the social economy, how do local authorities contract social economy enterprises and what policies have they implemented for the social economy?

Some 50 mayors and policy-makers from major French cities involved in social economy support participated at a RTES meeting in Paris on 12th May.

The meeting was an opportunity for AEIDL to present two networks it coordinates – the ESF Transnational Platform and the Social Innovation Community (SIC) project.
