Third lecture in the lectures series on ‘Social Enterprise and Social Innovation for Sustainability’

How is socioeconomic inequality affected by the transformation of wealth distributions respective to income? In this public lecture we show how private ownership objectively changes inequality within homogeneous socioeconomic groups and must be considered by social policies in order to improve public pension regimes and social protection (or in order to avoid their collapse).

This public lecture series presents a platform to critically discuss newly emerging approaches to organizing the economy and firms based on collaboration and sharing in response to sustainability challenges of the 21st century.  Most recent developments such as the development of the circular economy and creation of renewable energy cooperatives contributing to decentralizing energy systems across Europe, cooperative housing and crowd funding will be put into perspective. Better addressing the risk of social inequalities will be central towards building capacity in civil society to engage in wider sustainability transitions. The lectures explore whether such novel approaches aiming at systemic change, can meet new and formerly unmet community needs.
