Living Together: a study of Hansalim as a model for solidarity pathways towards sustainable food systems

Project description

Cooperatives and the solidarity economy debate

The rising global demand for food requires new industrial food system solutions. The question now is whether the solidarity economy is an idealistic theoretical scheme or a viable proposal. There is evidence that multi-stakeholder cooperatives (MSCs) in Europe operate successfully on a small scale. However, research on whether they represent a precursor of a larger transformation is missing. The EU-funded LivingTogether project will contribute to the debate about the role of the solidarity economy in food system transformations. It will support the exchange of information between East and West, scholars and cooperative movements. To achieve this, it will focus on the Korean Hansalim cooperative established by producers and consumers and that is today the largest organic food MSC worldwide.
