題目/ Title：Crafting Synergistic Embeddedness for Sustainability: Lesson from a thrift shop
Under the trend of building a social investment state in Taiwan’s context, a major challenge to charity organization has been how to transform from reliance on donation and subsidy into revenue for breakeven. The case of Carpenter’s House Thrift Shop offers valuable insights to social and solidarity economy. Though social and solidarity economy enterprises have been characteristic of more intensive and extensive embeddedness compared to for-profit enterprises, not all forms of embeddedness are proven to contribute to enterprise survival. Drawing on a Polanyian framework “embedded business model” which emphasizes on diversity of motives, plurality of mode of integration, and versatility of institutional form in economic transaction, this paper argues that the relative success of Carpenter’s House could be attributed to a business strategy which might properly be called “synergistic embeddedness“. In the process of exploring paths for creating revenue and cost down, Carpenter’s House crafted various measures, including government commissioned project, industry-school cooperation, training and hiring People with Disabilities, religious volunteering and so forth, contributive to achieve both financial and social objectives. Synergistic embeddedness describes cost advantages that enterprises obtain due not to their scale or scope of operation but specific forms of sociation. The author concludes that successfully crafting synergistic embeddedness might be crucial for the survival of social and solidarity economy enterprises.

題目/Title：Innovative Time Banking Practices in Taiwan: Implications to SSE
Time bank/time banking is a mechanism in which various services are exchanged without the use of money. Theoretically, it can enhance reciprocity and cohesion in a community and it can also raise participants’ self-esteem and social capital. Nevertheless, it also faces many challenges to promote time banking in Taiwan after nearly three decades. This study focuses on time banking, the social and solidarity economy, and the relationship between the two. The two case studies dealt with in this paper, one in Keelung and one in Kaohsiung, were conducted by the author in the course of different research projects over the past few years. The author had an in-depth understanding of how the initiators of these two cases promoted their time banking projects and the challenges they face through semi-structured interviews. The author found out that initiators in both cases have done comprehensive studies on the core needs of each community, and have developed innovative measures to promote time banking and fulfill community needs. Although both cases do not identify themselves as a social and solidarity economy, their practices have elaborated alternative ways in which the role of the monetary system and the relationship between individual and community are critically reflected. This study suggests that a time banking mechanism that takes each participant’s value into account and seeks plural and alternative ways to fulfill community needs has the potential to develop a social and solidarity economy.
Keywords: Time banking, alternative economy, reciprocity, community

題目/Title：Designing for homelessness beyond shelter: Assembling fragmented forms of life
This article reflects on a social design project conducted in the Industrial Design Department of a university. The project involved third-year students in the "Product Development" course, who addressed the issue of homelessness through literature review and field investigations. They aimed to develop practical designs for the homeless population. Initially focused on a "Mobile Sheltering Vehicle," the students' six design proposals went beyond the initial scope, exploring various aspects such as food, clothing, shelter, public communication, empowerment, and social participation for the homeless. The article examines the social implications and significance of these "social designs," providing progressive insights into understanding homelessness. It reviews the project's objectives, execution process, and analyzes students' design thinking and responses. Ultimately, the study offers recommendations for future urban space design and public policies concerning homelessness.
