Chicago Cooperative Economy Summit

  • Cara 237 South Desplaines Street (map)

The Chicago Cooperative Economy Summit will freely host panels of the co-op economy's leaders and pioneers, provide breakout discussion zones to delve deeper, offer tabling space for cooperative organizations to promote awareness and enroll people in their programs, and publish the first directory of Chicago's 250+ brick and mortar sites in the cooperative economy, ranging in goods and services from housing co-ops to credit unions, food co-ops to bike shops, mutual aid groups to community gardens, printing presses to health care co-ops, insurance pools to babysitting co-ops, video production studios to financial planning co-ops, and much, much more. 

By pooling our collective resources and experiences, we can build the base and accelerate the growth of Chicago's cooperative organizations by adding value, decreasing costs, and increasing funding as members and aspiring members evaluate and collaborate on the Chicago cooperative economy's next steps and integration with our lives.
