Co-ops Fortnight: How cooperatives are driving community innovation
This online session will be an interactive discussion focusing on innovations in the cooperative sector, what the realities of day-to-day work are in a coop, and ways that you might consider becoming a coop or even implementing some of the seven Cooperative Principles.
Who is it for?
This session is for co-ops, or those interested in the cooperative movement from Social Enterprises, social entrepreneurs, enterprising charities and purposeful businesses, individuals, and those representing their organisations.
Find out how being a co-op could help your organisation, or just come along and be inspired by the work of others!
Following Polly’s presentation, there will be chance to ask questions and discuss amongst the group.
