Do you think that the economy could be fairer? Do you think there are better ways of running a business? Heard about co-operatives but not sure what they are, how they operate, or how to set one up?
We’ve created an inspiring evening programme of practical workshops for young project leaders (18-30 years old) in London from October to December 2019. You can apply to join the programme and meet other inspiring young people in London running their own co-operatives in media, technology, food, and campaigning, and access the right advice and experience for your own project!
