What's in the Pipeline: Strategy for Regional Cooperative Development in Philadelphia

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The workshop will present the strategies and successes of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA), a cross-sector association, as the basis for a conversation about regionally rooted approaches to co-op development. In the past year, PACA has focused on engaging community partners, supporting the existing co-ops in and around Philadelphia, and planning for the growth of the regional cooperative economy. We want to share our model and inspire others to consider similar approaches while asking the question how can we do this better?
