@LeoSammallahti Definitely intrigued.
Bicycle #WorkerCooperative in Philly is running an Indiegogo campaign to help them get started. Check it out:
@aura Haha! Pretty much sums it up!
@LeoSammallahti That's great food for thought. We need councillors with the political will to embrace this kind of thinking. Thanks for sharing!

#coop fact of the day!
Big banks, the most powerful economic actors in the world, throw everything they can against #creditunions. Yet the coop model ends up beating them at their own game.
@emi Thank you so much!
@Matt_Noyes Sounds great!
@sbeebe Thank you!
@dazinism Thank you!
@aurochs That's awesome. I lived in a housing co-op in Kitchener for a couple of years - it was my first introduction to a true community where everyone contributed what they could afford in terms of time as well as money!
So happy to be here! Here's my #introduction: I'm a lifelong social justice activist and Fellow of the School for Social Entrepreneurs from the UK, currently involved in several initiatives that are transitioning into co-ops. I'm becoming very enthusiastic about co-ops and worker-ownership models as a way of democratising the economy and keen to meet like-minded people, exchange ideas, and help contribute to the movement! I'm also a big fan of decentralised social networks!
