Event Description

Join Melanie and Marty to learn ‘Co-op Basics’: history of co-ops, principles, values, types, scope and success factors. The afternoon is ‘Application of the Co-op Model,’ which will provide you with the opportunity to explore how to use this model for your own initiatives. This workshop will also explore what resources are available for co-op development.

Offered as part of the Village Vancouver Transition School as part of Langara College's Sustainable Communities Summer School

They also facilitate training for co-op developers.
