The What Is a Co-op? zine explains the basics of how a co-op works, from the various types of cooperatives to how to begin one in your community. Written in clear and accessible language, the zine outlines the purposes, goals, and principles shared by cooperators. This beautifully designed 16-page resource can be put to use wherever learning happens: in the classroom, in your workplace, on the bus, or in a workshop. It makes a great handout, and is an introduction to co-ops that readers will return to again and again.
All of the content from this booklet is directly taken from Cultivate.Coop, a website for collaboratively building knowledge and resources on cooperatives and cooperation. Cultivate.Coop is one of many projects of the Toolbox for Education and Social Action (TESA). TESA did not write the original content of this booklet; rather, it was pulled directly from the site, and was developed collaboratively by co-op members and enthusiasts from around the world. So, if you spot any spelling or grammar errors, have questions about a specific topic, disagree with a point, or want to contribute something to a section - we encourage you to go to Cultivate.Coop to help us strengthen this resource!
