The Meaning of Mondragon

Please join us at a Human Agenda Roundtable for Human Rights

With 100,000 workers in 120 cooperatives, no layoffs
since 1956 and higher income than Spanish workers, how can we learn from the largest worker-owned cooperatives in the Western world, located in the Basque region of Spain?

 

Richard Hobbs: Executive Director, Human Agenda

The mission of Human Agenda is to envision a world where the human needs of all can be met, engage the community in forging local institutions that are democratic, cooperative, egalitarian, inclusive, sustainable, and kind, and assume individual responsibility to embody the change we’d like to see.
