Twilight Session: Learning to transform the co-operative movement

The Co-operative College presents a series of interactive workshops exploring co-operative solutions to contemporary issues. Tickets start from £5 and are open to all, from seasoned co-operators to those simply wishing to discuss some of their society’s most pressing challenges. If you are interested in exploring co-operative answers to poverty internationally then this session is the one for you.

What will I learn?

What does ‘learning’ mean in the co-operative context? How does learning take place? How relevant is the fifth principle to co-operatives today?
This Twilight session explores the role of education and learning in the twentieth century co-operative movement. Historically, co-operative education was about learning how to run an effective co-operative and to be a good co-operator. Are these still the aims of co-operative education today?

How will I learn?

The interactive session will kick off with a short 10 to 15 minute presentation from one of the college team, followed by a discussion of the issues raised. You will get the opportunity to have your say and listen to others too.

Book your place via the Co-operative College website.
