Blue Solidarity Economy (BSE) is a new concept and field of action that merges the opportunities of the Sustainable Blue Economy with the benefits of the Social and Solidarity Economy.
The Blue Economy promoted by the EU since 2012 and developed through the Blue Growth Strategy and the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) are in full growth within the Mediterranean agenda. The Solidarity Blue Economy (SBE) is the conjunction of these two concepts, seeking the integral, intelligent and sustainable use of marine resources and coastal areas with the perspective and principles of the SSE.
