🐋 Did you know that cotton candy was invented by a dentist, without flies we wouldn't have chocolate and honey has no expiration date? Based on these and other curiosities, this week in the newsroom we have been wondering if we really know the fundamental characteristics and the origin of what we eat, the reasons and the moment in which we began to fight for specific ideals or what led us to caring about those we love now, or we did in the past or we will in the future. Thus, with each campaign that comes to us, we intuit below the surface all those interactions that crystallize in a personal or collective project, fueled by a mission and driven with all the passion in the world. Over time we have learned to accept that although not all of them reach the shore, in their courage to set sail they have already achieved their first victory and as that old sailor saying reminds us: all ships are safe in port, but they were not made for that 🌊
📬 In this newsletter we are riding a great tide to give continuity to an independent and fundamental means of communication; we join the recovery of ancestral knowledge to take advantage of food resources and take care of the planet; we accompany the fight for equal participation in Alarde and throughout the world; we remember and recover the voice of an essential author in the areas of education, culture and activism. Thank you for joining us one more day! ❤️
Save a sacupan 🥖
🌱 In the face of the climate crisis that we are experiencing, numerous international actors are warning of the need to move from the linear economy (produce-buy-use-dispose), which depletes the planet's resources, to the circular economy, which prolongs life of resources to the maximum. This economy defends the need to reduce production and consumption, reuse, repair, renew, reuse and, finally, recycle.
🏡 Panduru wants to contribute to reducing food waste by making delicious pastries with surplus bakery bread, inspired by the women of previous generations who always took advantage of bread and other foods to support their families. Today, responding to a different need, the fight against climate change, they bring that idea to the present, formulating new recipes that offer a more sustainable alternative for consumption.

25. urteurrena elkarrekin loratzen ✋
🗓 En the 1990s, a few women began to demand their participation in the festivals of their town. In 1996 a small group of women attempted to enter the show and were returned to the basement where they were hidden with beatings and insults. In 1997 some of these women and men founded, together with a few others, the Jaizkibel Company, which is now 25 years old and they are going to celebrate it with a Historic Walk that includes the history of the company and the ins and outs of the struggle for women's participation.
😌 Women have been brought here by the conviction to participate equally in all areas of life and we are clear that there is much to do. That it is a process of awareness, dialogue and reflection that must be done every day.
👉 So that another 25 years do not go by without knowing a unique and equal boast of the people, support this event in goteo.cc/elkarrekinloratzen.
Now, Joan Fuster 📚
📚 "Now, Joan Fuster" is the main contribution of Edicions Tanyada to the commemoration of the Centenary of Joan Fuster. In this book, fusterians from various generations present the life and work of Sueca from different perspectives: on the one hand, that of the thinker, the writer and the creator; and on the other, that of the educator, the agitator and the political, cultural and linguistic activist.
🤔 Now, Joan Fuster is, in short, a choral essay in defense of the present and the urgency of his legacy. An invitation to think about the here and now, about everything we need to do to weave, articulate and implement a program that is no longer one of reconstruction, but of national survival. A program, of course, that will be on the left or it will not be.

All or Nothing: this Monday ends the 1st round of the campaign #LoNuestroEsDeVerdad 🌊
The campaign that aspires to obtain the highest amount in the history of Goteo has just exceeded €150,000 with the support of 2687 people and this is the key moment to achieve it.
As you know, we are talking about goteo.cc/lonuestroesdeverdad to consolidate La Marea as a 100% independent media outlet, which does not admits sexist advertising neither of the IBEX nor of those who profit from fossil fuels.
Do you remember the Valdecañas reservoir, in Cáceres, practically empty after Iberdrola decided to turbine water to produce energy? Or that video that showed how the extreme right roamed unchecked inside an Army barracks? Do you remember in which medium you first read daily information about climate change, about the climate crisis? Or what newspaper spoke on its front page of the court of Ibex35 businessmen of the future Felipe VI when the usual thing was to refer to the prince with the name of "The Prepared"? These are examples of news and coverage advanced by La Marea which were later echoed by the major media.
There are only 5 days left to ensure that this medium continues to exist. For this reason, we need you to row alongside us, to send this campaign to your friends, to your friends, to your relatives... We are in the final stretch and we need you.
Thank you very much for trusting us and let's go with everything!
Free training to boost your #ESS campaign!
Did you know that crowdfunding can boost your Social and Solidarity Economy project? As of November 17, from the Platoniq Foundation, we offer three free workshops and an online meeting aimed at cooperatives and entities that seek to finance themselves through crowdfunding. Take a look at each of the workshops and sign up to learn, connect with other initiatives and launch your own crowdfunding campaign with all the guarantees.
WORKSHOP 1: Introduction to Crowdfunding
Tuesday, November 17 (10:00-12:30)
In this free training workshop we will explain what crowdfunding is according to Goteo. We will give you keys to prepare a crowdfunding, giving special attention to your story, the description of your budget, individual rewards, and your social commitment.
WORKSHOP 2: Tools and strategies for the communication of your Social and Solidarity Economy crowdfunding
Tuesday, November 22 (10:00-12:30)
In this free training workshop you will learn the elements to take into account and the tools at your disposal for the dissemination of your initiative. You will see how communication is a crucial element for the success of a crowdfunding campaign. A well planned crowdfunding also works as a communication campaign, as it gives visibility and projection to the initiative. In addition, impact is amplified, as initiatives can benefit from increased visibility and legitimacy.
WORKSHOP 3: Design of digital governance in SSE projects
Thursday, November 24 (10:00-12:30)
This training will be carried out in a 2.5-hour session in which the importance of having governance systems for initiatives and projects will be introduced, and resources will be provided for the design of digital mechanisms. The objective is that the projects in the consolidation phase know the resources necessary for the design of digital governance systems, and the social impact that the implementation generates in their communities.
ONLINE MEETING: Space for the exchange of knowledge, experiences and good practices to promote projects
Thursday, December 1 (10:00-12:30)
An online meeting of 2.5 hours will be organized that will allow the exchange of experiences and good practices. It is about establishing a meeting place between entities and projects that can generate synergies in the short and medium term in order to reinforce their role and promote new initiatives. This event will bring together public and private organizations that promote the SSE, and promoters of projects that will represent the different SDGs with their initiatives.
