Social Economy as an Alternative to Globalization in Guatemala

CERLAC and the Guatemala Community Network are proud to present:

---Social Economy as an Alternative to Globalization---

Rosa Garcia Corado
Alianza por la Vida y la Paz, Guatemala

Rosa Garcia Corado is a member of the Alianza por la Vida y la Paz, a
coalition of social and popular organizations, indigenous and ladino
women and men from Petén, Guatemala. The Alianza strives for respect for
life and peace, and fights against economic, social, cultural, political
exploitation and exclusion. During the past years, the Alianza has
centered its efforts on building a People's economy network, as a
counterproposal to the destructive neo-liberal policies being
implemented in the region. This is a real challenge and a process which
has led them to constantly analyze the local, national and international
market economy, and to define their own alternatives at the community
and organizational level.

Rosa will speak on how women participate in alternative economic
projects such as cooperatives and community based initiatives as a means
of building empowerment for women in the social economy.
