In the wake of the GFC or ‘Great Recession’, there is hope for a new and emerging economic model (often called the ‘new economy’) where 'social enterprises’ are being created, and new investment strategies are being pioneered that blend both social and financial returns for the common good.

There is a need to explore and reflect on all of this rapid change; to workshop new ideas and cooperatively facilitate new forms of enterprise.

The CoopWorkshop has been designed to provide Workshoppers (members) with - you guessed it - workshops to build up the social enterprise sector in communities. Areas of key interest are:

  • The new economy, and environmental sustainability
  • Co-operative, employee-owned and mutual forms of social enterprise.

This initiative is supported by a range of friends - including Earthworker and Borderlands Co-operatives and the Culture and Context Unit of the Uniting Church and Creative Ministries Network of UnitingCare.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
