Actions and Detail Panel
Fri 21 October 2016, 18:30 – 21:30 BST
For many people 'The Coop' is all they know about the co-operative movement. But it's so much more than that.
Join us for an evening of discussion and questions with an expert panel to discover more about the #CoopDifference and find out why co-operation is both an economic and social model fit for today's business and community needs.
Marc Gardiner (Zebra Collective) on why co-operatives are good for workers, society and the economy
Christine Watts (Pembroke Estate Management Board) on why co-operatives are good for people and the communities they live in
Alistair Macpherson (Plymouth Energy Community) on why co-operatives are good for consumers and the environment
Karen Wilkie (Co-operative Party) on why the time has come for people powered politics and a co-operative economy
Chair: Cllr Chris Penberthy (Co-operative Councils Innovation Network; Plymouth City Council)
Refreshments will be available before, please book your ticket according to whether you wish us to cater for you or not (we don't want to waste food)
