A weekend for worker co-ops to learn, share and be inspired.
About the event
Designed and run by worker co-ops for worker co-ops, this annual gathering brings people together to share experiences and inspiration, to develop strategies and to have a lot of fun. A low-cost, back-to-basics event with camping or dorm accommodation, it aims to be as open and accessible as possible.
The programme consists of practical sessions designed and run by worker co-ops. There’s vegan friendly catering with food sourced from worker co-ops – as well as plenty of camaraderie around the campfire.
Book with confidence
The Worker Co-op Weekend 2021 will run as an in-person event. In the event of covid restrictions forcing the cancellation/postponement of this event, full ticket refunds will be offered.
