an investment plan, not a change plan

Published

on

This week the Governing Council approved the Autonomous Strategic Plan – Balearic Islands 2030 Investment Strategy. We are many groups and organizations that have been waiting for some time for information about the arrival of these funds, their management and the articulation of them within the framework of the autonomous institutions on the island and municipality and specifically through the Office for Strategic Investments of the new Conselleria of European Funds, Culture and University. These are funds that are attached to a plan of state dimensions – the plan Spain can– most of which are administered directly by the state. The possibility of obtaining funds from these funds exists through tenders or tenders within the framework of the treaty law.

There are many doubts, uncertainties, skepticism and the complexity of the information about these funds, which are mostly instant investments (2021-2023), which follow the strategic axes established by the state up to the PERTE (Strategic Projects for Economic Recovery .) hanging and transformation) that talk about “tractor” projects and public-private collaboration in a story that talks about care, resilience, sustainability, inclusion, green and digital transition and leaves no one behind. There is an abyss between history and reality that is as big as the idea of ​​what we mean by “transformation” and what the fundamental strategic axes of this transformation should be. On the part of the governments, this transformation focuses on the economic fabric of companies, while we understand the transformation and focus on the need to reduce growing poverty, Fighting inequality and exclusion and the scarcity of resources and the need to strengthen key sectors in a new production structure that is geared towards reduction (energy and material consumption), productive relocation and ruralization as well as a fair redistribution of resources under conditions of eco-social and intergenerational justice.

So we’re starting from a concept that is radically opposite to what this transformation should mean. From the third sector and the social and solidarity economy, despite the need to question their background, their forms and their governance, we still want to see the possibility of tackling truly transformative projects, starting from our values ​​that are based on people and not are geared towards capital, in processes of change and not in private macro-investments, in the assumption of planetary biophysical limits and metabolic regeneration needs of the biosphere and not in a Greenwashing of the manual, and so we’re not giving up figuring out how to get those resources and leverage to expand, strengthen and consolidate truly transformative projects from the ground up and for the majority of 99%. But we not only encounter discrepancies in the approach to what is or should be strategic, and we find it very focused on investments in infrastructure construction and technological processes, but also on investments that do not involve changes in the regulatory and tax framework are embedded that are currently absolutely no transition and leave us only on the edge of the ‘possible’ and not at all desirable in the scenario of urgency and the systemic crisis with which we are struggling and have to cope with. Access to funds is also difficult for us because what counts as “non-profit” does not generate any (after them) economy (of which: accumulation) and therefore cannot access these mutual funds. And we also come across guidelines and requirements that in no way favor accessibility beyond major interests and major investments, that take care of the “macro” and forget the “micro”, i.e. people.

All of this we have seen over the past few months through the workspaces at both state and regional levels that have been created to monitor these resources and try to influence decision-making, and it shows up in the debates and spaces Information that has also been created in recent weeks in the context of the third edition of the Week of Economic Transformation, promoted by Mercat Social, and the round table organized last Thursday by Amics de la Terra Mallorca. Necessary spaces to identify suspicious certainties, to open windows, to share concerns, to see possibilities and above all to generate spaces for meeting, strengthening and searching for alternatives for the true transformation that we know as possible and necessary for this surely will not occur means.
