As we announced back in April, the Co-operative Party commissioned this independent piece of work from the NEF because we want to see a step-change in the co-operative sector.

I just returned from my first Commonbound conference in St. Louis, hosted by the New Economy Coalition (NEC). Resource Generation has been a part of the New Economy Coalition for a few years and this was my first time attending the conference.

A full day participatory learning experience, sharing insights and practical actions to solve your organisational challenges.

Our story

Japan’s cooperative sector has serious potential. Not only is it home to the world’s largest consumer coop, the Japan Consumers’ Cooperative Union, but the largest agricultural coop in the world (Japan Agriculture) and the world’s fifth largest insurance coop (Zenkyoren) are also proudly Japanese. However, Japan still has relatively few worker cooperatives. This is because there is no legal framework for the creation of worker coops in the country. Could the submission of a new proposed law to parliament later this year change that?

Palante Technology Cooperative is seeking a new technical support person to join us in our work with incredible nonprofit and community organizations. The new worker will join our tech support team, providing remote and on-site assistance to our clients in New York City.

Who we are

It’s a core question of our time — how we can create positive (as opposed to coercive) power structures that empower the broadest range of people to work powerfully on what matters to them — meeting the urgent challenges of the 21st Century.
