What could you do to face this tragic situation of global income distribution on the world, represented in the figure below, extracted from a work document of UNICEF? What can we do together? Redistribution of opportunities is needed. Redistribution of economic value is needed. Redistribution of power is needed. Always more democracy, economic solidarity between all persons and peoples without exclusion, intercultural dialogue, respect both private and public freedoms exercised in ethic way are needed.

Only the solidarity economy have all conditions to promote a real economic redistribution, ensuring economic freedoms for all - both freedom to self-manegement of the enterprises by the workers and his communities and freedom for all persons to consume what they need in a sustainable way for their well-living (bem-viver) respecting the well-living of all.
Freedom, justice and sustainability we need always more and more, for ever. The solidarity economy is our way to reach the redistribution that world need to live in peace.
