The circular economy doesn’t aim to end growth; it aims to bend how we do things back into harmony with nature, so that growth can continue. Mark de Wit from @email@example.com spoke to @NatGeo@twitter.com about circularity. Help fight e-waste by recycling old phones ♻️: https://frphn.co/LxaNs
The popularity of Wikipedia article about #workercoops seems to be going up a lot - last month was by far the best month since records began!
We’ve changed our name! After feedback from members and non-members and lots of discussion, we decided to change our name to the Prisoner Solidarity Network (PSN). We felt this was a clearer and more accessible name for the group, that will help us communicate our work to people.
Unions in Nordic countries seem to be very focused on helping when things go wrong - during unemployment, when accidents happen, when there's unlawful treatment of workers.
This is absolutely vital, but I wonder whether focus should also be put to maximise potential, not just minimise risks.
Adult education, helping set up a coops or a voluntary move from wage-earner to self-employment, etc. all seem like worthy of more attention.
The 12th and final chapter of #SolidarityEconomy Roads is here! Get a cup of coffee and give it a read:

food, Capitalism!, 2019
it's extremely cool that i've gone back to just ordering from places over the phone in 2019 instead of placing easy and convenient online orders, because it turns out every online hub to deliver from (grubhub, ubereats, whatever) is either fucking over the restaurants OR their drivers
we have the technology but we really shouldn't use it
economic democracy makes me smile
