Join us for a session to better understand the values and economics that cooperatives support.

About this event


Cooperatives uphold a set of values about the economy and these values work best when they are practised through the cooperative’s buying and selling activities. This course will introduce participants to the planning tools that can be used to deliberately align a cooperative’s values with how it buys supplies and sells services and products.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this course participants will:

Understand the values that cooperatives support

Have developed a plan to align the values of the cooperative to its purchasing and procurement processes

Have tools to deliberately use values as a marketing and sales strategy

This workshop is part of the Co-operate Islington project & funded by Islington Council. Douglas Racionzer, who will be facilitating the workshop, is a social entrepreneur with a personal imperative to engage communities to dream and flourish, organising with them and empowering their lives. He has years of experience working with economic development programmes and is currently working as a community development manager on Gillett Square in Hackney.

The training is from 10-1 and then there will be an optional lunch afterwards from 1-2, with other members of our co-working community. The lunch is vegetarian and a contribution of £5 is welcome.
