New campaign for cooperation proposed

Here’s an idea from Co-operative Business Consultants, who have been responsible for staging the three ‘Ways Forward’ activist conferences in Manchester over the past eighteen months.

CBC are proposing a new campaigning network/organisation specifically to bring together individuals who are engaged in the cooperative movement and who want a forum for “open and democratic discussion” about its development.

It’s true that neither Co-operatives UK (which is an organisation for member cooperatives) nor the Co-operative Party offer a mechanism for individual supporters of cooperation of the kind CBC have in mind. I think CBC’s idea a good one.

They have a survey monkey open for responses at present.
