Grass-root Solidarity Economy

 
The Integral Cooperative of Heraklion (I.C.Her.) organizes a series of events aimed at highlighting the program of Economic Disobedience that we apply, the self-management tools we use and the wider participation of individuals and groups in the network we are building.
 
- What are Integral Cooperatives and Economic Disobedience?
- How does the local alternative currency "Kouki" works?
- What are cryptocurrencies and how do we use them?
- What is the relationship of such economy with our political values of horizontality and self-organization?
 
At these events we intend to answer these questions and any other you might have. We want to come closer, exchange views and gain the cohesion of a local community that will strive for the transition to a society centered on humanity, ecology and liberation from all forms of power.
 
Our program consists of video projections, presentations, discussions and workshops that are consistently combined with each other helping to gain a more complete picture, but at the same time they are also independent activities to which you can participate separately.
All events take place in the Social Self-organized Space of Da (15 Dedidakidon str, Kamaraki), starting at 8 p.m. with free entrance for all, while drinks will be offered where you are welcome to contribute for the operating expenses of the space that hosts us.
