The 7th Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair asks you to “Buy Good and Local. Here, now and all year!”. And to do so with Responsible Consumption and in the Social and Solidarity Economy, for people, for you, for the planet, for the future, for life!

This year, the fair is dedicated to promoting everything good and local. This is a way of contributing, individually and collectively, to containing and reversing the climate, health, social and economic emergencies through economic choices. Responsible consumption and the social and solidarity economy offer products, activities and services that we can include in our everyday lives: specific healthy and sustainable habits and practices that foster social justice. Furthermore, you can take part in Esfera, to show how you are acting “good and local”: #sumemBoiLocal.

Plaça de Catalunya is hosting the 7th Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair from 17 to 30 December. It is being organised by Barcelona City Council’s Directorate for Cooperative, Social and Solidarity Economy Services.

There will be 31 stalls plus the Responsible Consumption Area with a wide range of crafts, clothing and other textile accessories, culture, books, packaged food, cosmetics, toys and other small gifts that will help you to choose something good and local this Christmas!

This 7th fair is being held 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 the first day, 17 December, and on 20 and 21 December, it will be starting at 4 pm. On 24 December, it will close at 6 pm. Visiting the fair is organised, so you have to follow a delimited route.

Choose and contribute: #sumemBoiLocal 

This year, the Fair invites you to practice and share how we take part in everything good and local, and to do so by sharing knowledge and practices. Many of these practices are nothing new: your grandparents almost certainly did the same! Using resources responsibly, not wasting energy or food, always reusing rather than producing something new, etc. Traditional customs that we need to foster in order to turn Barcelona into a responsible and sustainable city.

Furthermore, at the Fair you can buy things for the Christmas festivities and celebrations, which are also an example of what we can get all year round and in most economic sectors and activities. But in this case, using the values of the social and solidarity economy.

Consume good and local! The 7th Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair makes it easy to discover all the options within our reach, all year round. Do you want to find out more?

The 7th Fair is calling: Fancy joining in? Share how you are contributing! Choose and contribute: #sumemBoiLocal 

Yes, there are lots of things we can already do, and with everything you'll find at the Fair’s stalls you can make a lot of changes to your everyday life, for Christmas and all year round. Moreover, at the Responsible Consumption Area, you can get information on specific practices and projects to join in with everything good and local and to get more out of responsible consumerism and the social and solidarity economy, every day of the year. There is no doubt, your present and future objectives are doable if you have the information: the Responsible Consumption Area can help you do it!

At the Fair, you will find Esfera, where you can leave your mark on the exhibition, by explaining what you have done, and what you want to do, to help with everything good and local. If you wish, you can also share your inspirational ideas, by uploading a photo, and your action, to social media, under the hashtag #sumemBoiLocal.
