Green European Foundation, with the support of the Flemish Green Think Tank Oikos, organised a seminar featuring the Canadian expert on the Commons, John Restakis.

This event is a part of this year’s GEF transnational project ECOPRO (“Ecological Production in a Post-Growth Society”). It featured John Restakis – the director of the British Columbia Co-operative Association (Canada) and an acknowledged researcher of the role of Co-operatives worldwide, especially in relation to a new, socially fair economy, and he is the author of Humanising the Economy. Co-operatives in the Age of Capital. He is currently working together with Michael Bauwens and the P2P Foundation to create synergies between the Commons and the Co-operative movement.

During the seminar, John Restakis illustrated the advantages of co-operative enterprises in the context of this year’s ECOPRO thematic focus – sustainable work in a post-growth society.
