In the session on 12 May 2020, the European Alliance Against Coronavirus looked at the French social economy clusters (Pôles territoriaux de coopération économique). They support territorial development and answer to local needs. Main activities include childcare, renewable energies, sustainable farming and feeding, job creation, and cultural activities. In their work, they struggle against delocalisation and promote local distribution networks. Universities, SMEs and local authorities can take part in them. The coronavirus crisis puts a spotlight on these organisations.
