Cooperation  the key for economic transformation

Speaker: Dr. Fiona Duguid and Laura Zöckler
Time: Tuesday, 18.01.2022 from 12:30 – 14:00h
Place: Online via Zoom
Language: English

Community, collaboration, cooperation, co-production - four “co”-words that drive transformation. As opposed to the traditional economic model, strategies involving plural ownership and cooperatives lead to alternative ways for generating shared wealth. What is required for this type of economic transformation? How can cooperative models address current challenges for a sustainable future? By discussing theoretical and practical matters, this workshop offers a look into the forms of organization, strategies, and stakeholders necessary for building community-based solutions in a present that demands climate and economic justice.

Dr. Fiona Duguid is Principal Researcher at Duguid Consulting, and research fellow with the Centre of Excellence in Accounting and Reporting of Co-operatives in Canada. Her career has been focused on the research and policy support for co-operatives in her home country.  Currently she co-leads the Conversion to Co-operatives Project, an initiative that aims to analyze the conversion of small business into cooperatives as a solution to save jobs and address business needs.

Laura Zöckler is ambassador for the Bürgerwerke-Energie in Gemeinschaft, an alliance of energy cooperatives in Germany that aims to supply their members and citizens with renewable, regional and independent energy.
