WELCOME TO COPAC
COPAC is a not-for-profit section 21 Company. Our vision is to build human solidarity to sustain life and
a grassroots driven, just transition for system change.
This is a people’s grassroots and systemic alternative to reclaim production, consumption, finance, space and living. It is a value based alternative grounded in a transformative logic of building structural, movement, direct and symbolic power to sustain life. Member driven cooperatives, worker cooperatives, democratic planning, socially owned renewable energy, food sovereignty are all examples of grassroots solidarity economy building. This program thrust provides activist training tools, movement information and grassroots coordination for solidarity economy movement building.
The Solidarity Economy Movement has developed two crucial campaigns to build the solidarity economy at the grassroots in a bottom up manner: (i) End Hunger Through Food Sovereignty and (ii) Create Work Through Worker Cooperatives. This program includes developing campaign information, training tools and media tools.
This research agenda is about developing theory, reflection and analysis of transformative systemic alternatives and politics. This includes the democratic Marxism book series, research and publications on solidarity economy, food sovereignty, worker cooperatives and cooperatives.
