Permaculture, Cooperatives & Community Wealth
Universities and their students, staff, faculty, and visitors spend large amounts of money in countless businesses, as do hospitals. Imagine if most of these businesses were in the university or hospital’s community and were cooperatively owned by their workers. This would provide an enormous boost to local prosperity and social justice. Join us to learn more about the concept of “anchor institutions,” as well as a current initiative organized by UC graduate students to launch worker-owned cooperatives around UC campuses. With: Ted Howard, Democracy Collaborative; Letitia Carpenter, UC Community Economies Network. Hosted by: Melissa Fant, John Valenzuela, David Shaw from Santa Cruz Permaculture.
