In the years following the last economic crisis in 2008, young people turned to co-operatives as a way to create decent work and alternative careers for themselves, after most entry-level and graduate jobs were turned into precarious, short-term, or zero-hour contracts. Now with young people most likely to be affected by the current economic crisis, getting to know more about co-operatives can offer the opportunity to create work where you're in control.
Interested in co-ops but not sure where to start? Interested in the experiences and challenges of other young people who have started co-ops themselves?
Join us for an evening event featuring three ‘live’ case studies from co-operatives working in media & film – Blake House, coworking and publishing – Chapel Street Studios & Bread & Roses, and democratic education – Stir to Action & Selgars Mill.
