Twilight Session: Understanding the impact of co-operatives in the Social and Solidarity Economy

Co-operative College, Hanover Street, Manchester, United Kingdom
19 October 2017 — 17:30-19:00

Who is it for?

Our Twilight Sessions are a series of interactive workshops exploring co-operative solutions to contemporary issues. They’re open to all, so whether you’re a seasoned co-operator or just want to discuss some of societies most pressing challenges, we’d love it if you joined us.  Are you interested in the potential for co-ops to help provide for vulnerable people given the rollback of the welfare state? If so this session is the one for you!

You can see all six sessions here, with a huge 33% discount if you choose to book on them all!

What will I learn?

This session aims to generate discussion and ideas around the important role that co-operatives play in the Social and Solidarity Economy and how we can ensure that co-operatives are leading the way in poverty reduction strategies around the world.

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 others too.
