NO CO Co-op Study Group

Information

NO CO Co-op Study Group

NO CO Co-op Study Group will explore alternative economic solutions such as cooperatives, public banking, and community-supported entrepreneurship.

The Study Group will hopefully provide a context for people to incubate their new ideas and projects based on the co-op model.  As a group we can explore innovative ways the community can offer support for new projects and meaningful work.

REconomy" is a term used within the Transition Town Movement to refer to re-visioning, revising, and re-localizing business and work.

It includes designing ways of making a living that are both environmentally and economically sustainable and empower rather than exploit workers.  The connnection to co-ops is that these goals can more often be accomplished through cooperatives than through standard business organizations.

We will meet every 5 weeks.
