Co-operative Alternatives to work, housing, energy, food and much more

Saturday 11 June 2016. 10.30am at the Synergy Centre 78 West Street, Brighton, BN1 2RA

After party from 7pm with food and drinks from local workers’ co-ops as well as entertainment!

Have you dreamed of working without a boss?
Of living without a landlord?
Of having a media system owned and run by us, not by billionaires and corporations?
Of having an energy system which is powered by renewables and owned and run for all of us?

We should all have more ownership and control over the different parts of our lives –  our housing, our work, our energy, our media, our food, our land, our technology, our democracy and much more.

There are co-operative alternatives to the capitalist and competitive system we live within.

This day of workshops – organised by Mutual Aid in Sussex and Free University Brighton – gives an introduction to some of those co-operative alternatives and gives you a chance to meet many of the people who are making them happen and even set up one yourself!

It’s also an opportunity for people in co-operatives and social enterprises in the city to come together to get to know each other more and to see how they can help each other – whether it be through advice, contacts or contracts.

Whether you’re completely new to co-operatives and social enterprises, or have years of experience, there will be something for you, including:

We want a world where ownership, decisions and profits are shared, rather than being in the hands of the rich and powerful (the 1%). A world where people co-operate and work together to make this happen. Come and join us to find out how to make it happen.

FREE entry. Donations welcome! Food and drinks from local cooperatives to buy on the day.
