After two seasons as a podcast, All Things Co-op is making the leap to video!
For those of you prefer audio, we've got you covered. ATC will still be available as a podcast.
How do we create a more just, sustainable world? Zen Trenholm, Program Manager with the Democracy at Work Institute, joins All Things Co-op to talk about cooperatives as an economic solution that goes beyond band-aid solutions. In this episode we discuss various co-op ecosystem development models across cities in the US.
Zen Trenholm is a Program Manager with the Democracy at Work Institute (DAWI) building capacity, partnerships, and resources to scale democratic employee ownership across the country. He currently leads the Shared Equity in Economic Development Fellowship program (SEED) where he convenes and equips city and community leaders with tools and support to build equitable economies using employee ownership. Prior to DAWI he was an organizer for fossil fuel divestment, a director at the California Student Sustainability Coalition, and a co-founder of the Student Environmental Resource Center at UC Berkeley.
The Democracy at Work Institute is not connected to us, Democracy at Work (d@w). It was created by the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives to ensure that worker cooperative development in economically and socially marginalized is supported, effective and strategically directed.
