dc.descriptionThe purpose of the B2 work is to contribute to the overall SERC 2 project on the social economy and sustainable rural development. The objective is to provide a theoretical and conceptual discussion of the similarities, differences and points of convergence between traditional sustainability and sustainable communities frameworks and the social economy. The B2 project will point to areas where the two fields of thought can actually inform and mutually support one another in the movement towards a more just and sustainable society. The project will provide a theoretical framework and context for the more sector-specific work being done in SERC 2 (food security, land tenure, energy, etc). In order to achieve this objective, we decided to focus the project outputs on academic publications and conferences that would take the discussion to a broader academic audience as well as contribute to BALTA’s student learning and publication objectives. The intention of this work, then is to provide the theoretical and conceptual understanding upon which the more specific SERC 2 work could be built.en
