V Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair

Our daily consumption habits have a high environmental and social impact With Christmas just around the corner, we must take a proactive approach and adopt strategies to mitigate the current climate emergency: let’s become more aware of our daily consumption, reduce it and transform it!

From 20 to 31 December, Plaça de Catalunya will be the stage of the 5th Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair, organised by Barcelona City Council’s Commissioner for Social Economy, Local Development and Food Policy.

At the fair, you can take part in different activities and will find almost 60 projects, organisations and companies advocating specific practices for mitigating the climate emergency based on the social and solidarity economy (SSE) and responsible consumption, with the aim of achieving a habitable city and planet.

Responsible consumption for a habitable city and planet

The fair consists of 38 booths, where you will find the projects and services of nearly 60 ESS organisation and companies offering a wide range of services, craft products, clothes and other textile accessories, culture, books, food, toys, cosmetics, healthy well-being and other products suitable for small gifts, as well as places to eat.

The aim of this fifth fair is to suggest and explain specific consumption practices and daily habits that can be incorporated into people’s lives to help mitigate the climate emergency. The objective is to reflect on the decisions we can make as consumers to take part in an economy that has to bring about an ecological and energy transition before 2030.

The fair is in the outer ring of Plaça Catalunya, and is normally open from 11 am to 8.30 pm, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day, when it will be closed. On opening day, Friday 20 December, it will start at 4 pm, and on the final day, 31 December, it will close at 4 pm.

Once again, we invite you to take part in the Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair by purchasing products, paying for services and taking part in activities as an act of responsible consumption and buying locally. At the same time you will be helping our city and planet and city to be habitable places. W look forward to seeing you discover entities and companies that make the social and solidarity economy possible with viable projects that have a high social and environmental return for the neighbourhoods and districts.
