In this book , Mr. Vassilis Taktikos Coordinator of National Greek Observatory examines three interrelated concepts , ' civil society ', ' social economy ' and ' participatory democracy' which in our time through a dialectical relationship , create a dynamic content of social change.

At the same time, it examines this relationship considering a new rising type of economy, the " third industrial revolution" that brings elusive deep upheavals unthinkable for other eras: the distributed knowledge, the distributed horizontally energy , the socialization of intellectual property through the internet and digital technology and computing.

Aftereffect of this revolution is the green growth, the possibility of direct digital democracy, "globalization from below", the World Open school of knowledge.

Facing these new technological favorable conditions and opportunities, there is a negative consequence : The development of information of technology and robotics which reduces the workforce , given the fact that over the last twenty years most global jobs are decreasing in both the private and public sectors . Predictions for the future to these areas are even more bleak. The hopes are concentrated only in cooperative social economy sector where there is a steady increase of the creation of new jobs.

To these new data are required to adapt the political elite, mayors, civil society and our educational system. For this issue, is very important the catalytic role of the universality of civil society and the promotion of participatory democracy.
