Cooperatives have long embodied self-help and mutual aid. This year’s theme will encourage us to take a look at how we have built cooperatives with and for our whole community. This theme will delve into the hard work of community organizing as well as the mindfulness it takes to co-create with existing communities when starting a new cooperative. Building community power is an intersectional act when working with local communities. All over North America, there are pockets of cooperation that collectively we recognize as the cooperative movement.
We will be seeking workshops on community-based projects, building cooperatives with communities resources, leveraging cooperative spaces to meet community needs and participatory processes.
