Co-operatives: Working Together for a Fairer World


From Fairtrade coffee growers in South America to snake charmers in India, cooperative enterprises have been building a fairer world for their members for over 200 years. This workshop will explore how joining and setting up cooperatives in your community can offer a real alternative to conventional business. Richard will be joined by Chris Herries (director of the Cooperatives Group and Cooperatives UK) and Carl Taylor (director of Birmingham Cooperative Housing Services).

Richard Bickle is a freelance development worker and researcher, and co-founder of the Birmingham Film Coop and Revolver Cooperative.
