Uninspired by bullshit jobs? Tired of working for absentee shareholders and investors? While many of us are leaving our workplaces to create better models and methods of governance and value distribution, the devil is in the details.
DisCO is a set of methods and tools for creating radically democratic co-operatives, based on feminist principles and strengthened by Peer-to-Peer technologies. They provide practical learning experiences on the commons, feminist economics, and blockchains, offering accessible opportunities for people to actively engage with urgent social and environmental issues as part of their daily work.
Based on seven unique principles that complement and update the original co-operative principles, DisCO offers a hands-on micro-economic methodologies for a fairer future of work.
