Cooperatives and Education

The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), Project Equity, and the Green Collar Communities Clinic (GC3) invited cooperative members, developers, and supporters to join us in a brainstorming discussion about ways to help Californians learn about cooperatives. The questions we used to prompt the discussion were:

  • How might K-12 schools, colleges, and graduate schools begin to incorporate education about cooperatives into their curricula?
  • What skills and knowledge should be included in a program to learn about cooperatives?
  • What policies might promote greater infusion of cooperative education into various levels of education?

We took notes (below) so we could share the insights that were brought forth during the discussion. We will integrate these and future ideas into the East Bay's very first Worker Cooperative Academy!
