"Manlleu, socially responsible territory" campaign, in which Suara cooperative participates actively, kicked off on November 9 with a workshop held by Josep Maria Canyelles, Coordinator of Respon.cat. The Act consisted of a breakfast with businessmen and businesswomen of the city, with an initial presentation followed by a discussion.

During the talk, Canyelles explained what is sustainable development and how it’s a very transversal concept that affects all levels of society, both to work processes, as well as the people and the territory. The Conference also represented an oportunity to confirm that many of the companies that were participating already applied some of the values of the social economy, but they are not aware of what this concept represents.
The next events are a coffee with the Merchants Association of Manlleu (MAB), November 30th, with a speech of the journalist Josep Mª Flores, member of the campaign Canviem el Xip de Vilafranca; the signature of the manifesto “Socially Responsible Territories”, on 14th December.
Manlleu City Council campaign started on October 17 with the aim of bringing companies, retailers and citizenship values of sustainable development. Other participants at the campaign are Respon.cat and the social and solidarity-based Economy Network of Manlleu (which Suara is also part).
