Friday, 3rd February & Saturday, 4th February 2017
Future Co-ops 2017 is THE conference to attend to examine topics of importance for the future of co-operatives and other progressive organisations
Future Co-ops 2017 will address the Post Carbon landscape
Post Carbon challenges – co-operative solutions?
The current energy bonanza based on fossil fuels cannot go on forever. Climate change reasons apart, fossil fuels are not inexhaustible, even if new extraction methods such as fracking are used to eke out dwindling supplies.
This new landscape, whenever it comes along, will impact on all areas of everyone’s lives; access to food, transport, energy, manufacturing, etc. How can co-ops provide solutions?
Our Future Co-ops conferences have become a fixture in the co-operative movement calendar and 2017 is the 10th year the event has been held.
The purpose of the conference has always been to throw down a challenge to the co-operative movement and be provocative in its approach.
It is a unique event within the co-operative movement in that it brings together a wide range of co-operative activists from a variety of co-ops with activists from other progressive organisations, all keen to debate some of the key issues facing our future.
Our Speakers were:
Friday night speaker – Rob Hopkins – Co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and of the Transition Network
Saturday morning speaker – Dr Mark Simmonds – Co-founder of Co-op Culture
Saturday workshops include:
Energy – Carbon Co-op
Housing – Community Land Trust
Food – The Kindling Trust
Transport – Sail Boat Project CIC
