What will I learn?

What does ‘learning’ mean in the co-operative context? How does learning take place? How relevant is the fifth principle to co-operatives today?
This Twilight session explores the role of education and learning in the twentieth century co-operative movement. Historically, co-operative education was about learning how to run an effective co-operative and to be a good co-operator. Are these still the aims of co-operative education today?

How will I learn?

The interactive session will kick off with a short 10 to 15 minute presentation from one of our team followed by a discussion of the issues raised. You’ll get the opportunity to have your say and listen to the opinions of like-minded people at the workshop.
