Charla sobre cooperativismo de Plataforma y Sistemas Digitales en el Foro de Mundo Cooperativo y Economía Solidaria para el Buen Vivir.

Quote from KOR in Poland, on Staughton and Alice Lynd's kitchen wall:

Start doing what you think should be done.
Start being what you think society should become.
Do you believe in freedom of speech? Then speak freely.
Do you love the truth? Then tell it.
Do you believe in an open society? Then act in the open.
Do you believe in a decent and humane society? Then behave decently and humanely.

Videos from the recent conference on The Theory and Practice of in Cooperatives are now online:

This is How We Transform the Economy - SEIZE SPEAKER SERIES
4 key speaker sessions, 1 hands-on workshop, and several spaces to mingle!

Starting February 23 and ending on March 23rd, the SEIZE (Socialist Economy Incubation Zone for Entrepreneurs) will host one (1) speaker a week for four (4) consecutive weeks...The final workshop will be specifically focusing on Concordia’s food system transformation.

Interesting call with a guy from the Colorado Employee Ownership Office. Seems like there is more potential government support than there are actual projects looking for it. Interesting opportunity for coordinated grassroots efforts if we can organize them. @ntnsndr @clayton @ssvette @GeorgeCheney @care_save
