Organising businesses in the green economy

Cooperatives are often perceived as more sustainable businesses than corporations. This seminar/workshop will give ideas and examples of how cooperative businesses in different sectors overcome the challenges within sustainable business. We will investigate whether consumers and staff as owners of a company can help us choose a more sustainable lifestyle. The participant will help us to solve the why there are not more cooperative enterprises, when they are so promising.
