COLLECTING OURSELVES

“Collecting Ourselves: A Cooperative Entrepreneurship Curriculum” was published in 2017. It includes a selection of 16 trainings from the Traveling Cooperative Institute (TCI) program, while it was under my leadership from 2013-2016. This book includes over a dozen hour of popular education workshops accessible to groups of adolescents to adults. The curriculum is open source and licensed as Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike // CC BY-NC-SA 4.0¬†by the creative commons. This license lets others remix, adapt, and build upon this work non-commercially, as long as you credit me and license your new creations under the identical terms. For me, the credit is mostly about accountability and maintaining lineages of work. In the cooperative movement, in particular, I have found countless resources or tools whose author or inspiration are unknown. Understanding who created something and in what context allows someone to be an informed and critical reader, as it can shed light on why the resource may miss or hit upon certain points, which can help you assess whether the tool is useful to you.
