Welcome to the GEO Resource Library. Here you'll find a collection of documents that we see as key texts and resources for our work of imagining and building a solidarity economy. Some of these documents are theoretical, aimed towards building a big-picture story about where we are, where we are going, and how we might get there. Other documents are very practical, designed to provide concrete ideas and suggestions to people doing on-the-ground organizing of cooperatives and other solidarity economy initiatives. And finally, some documents combine the two approaches, suggesting strategies that can link our practices with the big ideas and vice versa.
If you have document that you're aware of and think should be a part of this library, please send them to us.
