Born from a suggestion made at the 4th Forum on Globalisation of Solidarity Lux09, in April 2009 by founding members of ALOE, Alliance for a Responsible, Plural and Solidarity Economy, Solecopedia is an initiative that is complementary to other communication tools and processes aimed at supporting a new emerging economy, based on greater solidarity and sustainability, such as resource Web sites and mapping of existing initiatives.

The main purpose of Solecopedia is to establish a dialogue between actors, researchers of different countries, cultures and sectors, on practices and concepts, to help make a sustainable and solidarity-based economy more visible by bringing economic, social and ecological notions together, and showing the coherence of its practices and associated theories.

It currently contains around 500 articles, in separate French, English, German, Japanese and Korean wikipedias.
