Coop education resources and "learning paths" in English, Spanish, and French.
"The Cooperative Educators Network (CENet) is a hub for educational resources and materials for teaching and learning about cooperative enterprises. Here you will find several curated learning paths designed to help someone self-teach to increase their awareness, knowledge or skills OR for someone in an educator role to gather materials to use in the teaching of others."
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
