SERIGO – Social Economy for Resilience, Inclusion and Good life in Rural areas

In response to the challenges faced by European rural areas – societal, demographic, economic and environmental – SERIGO focuses on how social innovation approaches, and in particular those from the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE), enhances resilience, social inclusion, and overall well-being in rural communities. The project will:

  • Conduct community-based research to explore the potential of the social economy and social innovation in promoting inclusivity and improving social inclusion in rural areas, including through case studies and pilot testing.
  • Foster constructive debates and collaborations on the topic among diverse stakeholders in Europe.
  • Provide policymakers with recommendations for policy development around social inclusion in rural areas using the approaches of the social and solidarity economy.
