I've been very much focused on organising on a local/level within Ireland the last few years, after first really becoming a co-operator within the international movement through involvement in a #platformcoop.
Discussing with some other cooperators about acting more internationally (outside of the more established institutions like ICA etc.) and I though about trying to gather a list of online spaces (such as social.coop) where we gather.
Anyone fancy chipping in?
@Matt_Noyes Ooh, I was just looking for more info on Eroski (esp. the role of consumer ownership in the network). Have a favorite source?

I only have the name “Cudgel” written in, but experimenting, I can add multiple layers, and then hide or show layers.
So... infinitely re-usable sheets.
Don’t know if I can copy a layer’s content, and I can’t copy pages of a PDF, so need to do a little more experimenting.
Agreed, think there is especially a lot of potential for mutual exchanges of services with no financial transactions.
Here is some explanation of what I mean from an article about data coops:
The 2nd part of our the DisCO Elements serialisation on Hackernoon is out!
"Socio-economic instability also provides opportunities for radical innovations & solutions based on human trust. DisCOs can address the present & looming future crises by creating bottom-up resilience & restoring our relationships - both to one another and the planet."
I just published a new post that has been ~10 years in the making.
It's about my falling in and out and in love with social justice activism, offering a critique of the fundamentalist currents that can take hold in social movements.
The Metsä Group coop, owned democratically by over 100 000 ordinary forest owners, will make the largest investment in the history of Finnish forestry industry to Kemi, a remote town in economic trouble. Forestry is the largest export industry in the country.
The coop produces 16% of Finlands renewable energy, more than anyone else.
Meanwhile the two other major forestry companies, both conventional capitalist firms, are outsourcing their operations abroad.
How is everyone on #socialcoop ?! :)
I've seriously cut down my social media use these days, and the extent to which I am on social, I'm on Twitter (as my Irish co-op network hasn't made it over here).
Wishing everyone well.
seeking #recommendations for an (app, system, document-format, whatever!) for doing local power mapping; i have a few different use cases in mind (political/solidarity-economy) and i'm hoping to find a reusable tool that is amenable to collaboration. open-source and privacy-minded are nice-to-haves but ease of use (both data entry and reading/consuming) is important.
