Together with Romania's membership in EU came an on fashion group of concepts social economy, cohesion, sustainable/enduring development, isolated community etc. we seemed eager to put to work, except many of them were hardly familiar to us, neither to the scientific level nor to the empiric one. And so, my approach is both a clarifying attempt, an endeavour to adjust some of these concepts to our reality, and an exercise of putting them into practice. The key concept the entire article revolves is that of isolated community, presented in regard with the principle of sustainable development a direction on hand to fallow due to its ethic generosity but as well because of the large European funds intended to support social and economic cohesion, solidarity, inclusion and community's specific identity.
