    • Biagio Quattrocchi, Vanessa Bilancetti , Francesco Silvi
    23 January 2019

    • Katie Sandwell
    18 January 2019
    Book

    Giant corporations have taken control of our food. In the last two years, these companies have begun the process of merging and re-arranging themselves into just four colossal corporations. The larger these companies grow, the less we can control them. And the less control we have, the harder it is for us to build the kind of food system that more and more of us want: one that recognizes the value of people, respects the planet, and provides decent, dignified work. How did this happen, and what can we do about it?

    Article

    For around 13 years, on the Dutch Trade and Investment Board (a body that is not familiar to most of the Dutch public) top civil servants and company lobbyists have been discussing how the government can support the country’s international trade. Minutes reveal how lobbyists and ministers collaborated in reforming fiscal and development policies in favour of private interests. It’s an example of the power of ‘quiet politics’ of company lobbyists in the Netherlands, calling into question the country’s image as an exemplar of liberal, consensual corporatism.

    Un modelo de energía renovable basado en la participación, la propiedad colectiva y la equidad de género

    17 December 2018
    Article

    La cooperativa GoiEner fue fundada en el año 2012 en Euskal Herria como respuesta tanto al oligopolio energético como al auge del movimiento antiausteridad que se generó en relación con la crisis económica. En estos seis años, esta cooperativa de generación y consumo de energía renovable ha crecido hasta contar con casi 9000 socios, y se ha convertido en un modelo inspirador para la transición a un nuevo modelo energético.

    El enfoque de GoiEner se caracteriza, entre otros aspectos, por paliar la pobreza energética, por un activismo democrático y participativo y por la representación equitativa de mujeres y hombres. Asimismo, GoiEner apoya la creación de cooperativas de energías renovables en otras regiones del Estado español con el objetivo de aumentar la resiliencia energética local, democrática y renovable.
