for equality and for a fair distribution of wealth

About us.

Achieving a fairer distribution of wealth is something that many people and entities have been working on. This observatory aims to become a meeting space that, without involving a greater workload, allows us to get to know each other and share experiences, thereby contributing to that objective.

The Observatory is created after being approved unanimously in the Board of the Faculty of Labour Relations and Social Work of the UPV / EHU. It counts on the participation of Gezki (social economy) and Hegoa (cooperation and education for sustainable development) institutes, as well as the consolidated Parte Hartuz Research Group (participation) and other persons of the UPV / EHU.

Volunteering.

 
We currently have a team of thirteen volunteers, collaborating in the following tasks:
  • Carrying out research, training and dissemination activities on topics of interest to the ToShare Observatory.
  • Classifying the different information and existing contents so that they can later be disseminated, defending the Observatory's proposals in the different social network forums.
  • Collaborating with the loading of content on the web and the preparation of the newsletter.
  • Making translations in different languages.

Collaborating entities.

It also relies on an open network of public and private collaborating entities that will contribute to the investigations and the subsequent transfer to society.

Reasons for its creation.


The objective of the Observatory is to promote different investigations that, in terms of fair distribution of wealth, allow generating knowledge and, with the support of a network of public and private entities, transfer it to society, so that it can be formed and raise awareness about existing alternatives, contributing to the strengthening of the welfare state.

This theme is closely linked to others such as the Human Rights and the UN SDGs, the 4.0 industry and new technologies, the social and solidarity economy, citizen participation and the strengthening of democracy, work and employment, gender equity, migration, and inclusive, permanent and life-long education.

In this way, it contributes to creating a more critical and participatory citizenship in public policies, which results in the strengthening of democracy and in which the Institutions and Governments undertake a fair distribution of wealth that allows an adequate social protection system, and , with this, a significant advance in the fulfillment of the international commitments in the matter of Human Rights and in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
