Many people know what’s wrong with the economy, and what’s not working in their communities, but they don’t know how to fix it or what alternative strategies exist. CoopEcon introduces cooperative and solidarity economy alternatives, showcases successful co-ops, and provides co-op training both at the introductory and intermediate levels. And we do this from the perspective of the South – of people of color, low-wealth communities, and women struggling to build sustainable and prosperous communities in the South. CoopEcon provides networking, sharing of knowledge, inspiration and fun!
