Co-operatives Info Night – Stirchley


Tuesday 8th May – Birmingham Co-operatives Info Night

Next Tuesday Loaf will be joining local co-operative businesses, organisations and housing groups at the meeting for Birmingham-based Co-operatives.

Stirchley is home to several worker co-ops (we are one of them!) and we’d like to see more crop up in the area.

Worker co-operatives come in many forms. Successful co-operatives have one thing in common: they apply the values of co-operation – autonomy, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity, in the workplace and in their communities.

Worker co-operatives are trading enterprises, owned and run by the people who work in them, who have an equal say in what the business does, and an equitable share in the wealth created from the products and services they provide.

As well as benefiting their members, all co‑operatives share internationally agreed principles, and act together to ‘build a better world through co-operation’.

This meeting is open to all involved in co-ops, including people seeking to learn more. It takes place from 7pm-9pm. Tuesday 8th May at Artefact, 1464 Pershore Road Stirchley B30 2NT (near Loaf).
