Since March 2003, Vinculando.org has been a serious, plural and free space, built upon articles and documents from professionals and researchers on social sciences with a Latin American perspective.
We are committed on syndicating Sustainable Development experiences, values and practices in areas like organic production, fair trade, responsible consumption, economy of solidarity, ecology and more.
We promote current documents of wide interest from well known specialists and researchers, which is why Vinculando.org has become one of the sources of information for institutions like the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Ministry of Education (México) or the Inter-American Development Bank, among others.
Our work is completely independent from political and religious groups, political parties and govermental agencies and we promote with our daily work our stand against discrimination for any reason.
Some of our friends:
We are co-founders of the first National Network of Economy of Solidarity in México, which grouped more than 60 civil associations of small producers, employee-owned enterprises, coops and governmental agencies, and we are part of the North America Sustainable Consumption and Production Database, which groups several initiatives in this region.
