Co-operative-Led Solutions to Addressing the Climate Emergency

A co-operative economy would mean a democratised local ecosystem where the production and supply of food and other essential goods and services serves all those involved. A local ecosystem where food and essential goods are produced through community supported agriculture, by co-operative farms and fisheries, in local community gardens. A local ecosystem where we shop in farmers markets, worker-owned bakeries and butchers, and in consumer-owned shops.  A local ecosystem where we work in worker-owned factories and firms, producing socially useful goods and services. A local ecosystem where we live in collectively owned houses, powered by community renewable energy. A local ecosystem where we bank in a regional mutual bank and put our savings in credit unions.
