An M2M Solidarity Project | Photo Essay and Podcast

This photo essay was jointly created by Cargonomia in Budapest, Hungary and Cloughjordan Ecovillage in Ireland as part of a project entitled M2M Solidarity initiated by the Transnational Institute (TNI) in Amsterdam.  The project seeks to contribute to a revival of European solidarity rooted in peer-learning exchanges between community-driven initiatives. Cargonomia and Cloughjordan draw on the writings of Budapest-native, Karl Polanyi (1886-1964) on the need for a bottom-up great transformation to address the social and ecological crises of our times. The photo essay illustrates how these two projects are contributing to this great transformation. Click here to see the photos in full display.

The photo essay is an outcome of the M2M Solidarity project initiated by the Transnational Institute in Amsterdam. The project brought 11 European community-based projects together in groups of two or three with a brief to each to produce an expression of European solidarity. Cargonomia in Hungary and Cloughjordan Ecovillage in Ireland was one of the pairings and this photo essay is their joint expression of European solidarity, inspired by the rich insights of Budapest native Karl Polanyi (1886-1964) and particularly his classic work The Great Transformation (1944). Two podcasts Imagining transformation: Polányi’s insights for sustainability and Rebels with a cause: practicing decommodification and an info-graphic have also been produced by the Cargonomia-Cloughjordan collaboration.
