Session materials from "The Global Cooperative Movement," which was led by Jeff Bessmer (Santa Barbara Student Housing Co-op) at NASCO Institute 2014.
This workshop will review the roots and state of the global co-operative movement, from proto-cooperatives 3000 years ago to the 86,000 member Mondragon co-op and beyond. Hundreds of millions of people comprise the co-op movement and share its vision for a more just world. We will lay a conceptual and structural foundation for understanding these co-ops. Furthermore, we will examine some co-ops around the world, including Uganda, Japan, Cuba and more.
