I don't have any experience of working in a cooperative so can't speak to how different / novel / practical it is there. But I love the focus on recognising and actively valuing care work and work that gives back to the commons.
"The development of commons-public partnerships as an alternative to the established public-private, following the Preston and Evergreen models, with DisCOs facilitating:
a. Municipal service provision for local economies.
b. FLOSS-built and open licensed, common-pool civic knowledge
c. Practical workplace education on feminist economics, the commons,
decentralized technology and the ethical market sectors offered by participating DisCOs."
