Failed Rio+20, preparing our event

How a long day of sailing and workshops went, why it brought as little solutions as the guys from the UN at Rio+20 and whats coming next.

“One core element of solidarity economy is to disentangle cost and benefit”

And now, we arrived well in Liepaja and start preparing the next event. Stay tuned for more actions in the harbour!
