Bios… the other way

In Thessaloniki, a city strongly affected by the financial crisis, over 420 citizens have united under the slogan "We take our food in our hands". The non-profit Social Consumer Cooperative 'Bios Coop' offers local products without mediators since 2013. Its operation is based on the principles of Direct Democracy, Social and Solidarity Economy, with the aim of proposing a different business model. It is an example that shows us "other ways" for the future.
