Educational organisations like LCRE in rural areas of Europe striving for eco-social change tend to experience difficulties in financing their projects, their staff, and their investments.
Usually they combine both charitable and business activities. People who are about to set up a LCRE often have difficulties in choosing a suitable legal form, because their multifold activities are not easily categorised. The LCRE organising this webinar all integrate into their work in one way or another ways of commoning. However, within capitalist, market-oriented frameworks, none of the existing choices provides an option that appropriately reflects commons structures.
This webinar addresses these difficulties and shows successful economic strategies of existing LCRE. These include the fields of gifting economy, where work, care, and money are contributed on a basis of voluntary contributions, as well as social entrepreneurship or solidarity economy. In addition, innovative and traditional strategies of fundraising suitable for LCRE will be presented.
Although there are different framework conditions in different European countries, the basic apporaches are adaptable to any given economic structure in a European country.
