Defending the Environmental Commons, Ann Arbor November 6-8, 2009

Join the Highlander Center and the more than 400 co-op members, cooperative educators and representatives of democratic organizations from across the U.S. Canada, and beyond as we converge in Ann Arbor for NASCO’s (North American Students of Cooperation) Cooperative Education and Training Institute. Through workshops, discussions, panels, caucuses and film screenings we will rethink how we produce, transport and consume; share tools for sustainable practices; and create cooperative solutions to spark change “In OUR BACKYARDS.” Come join us as Highlander leads the Cooperative Leadership Track on anti-oppression and collective liberation; join others in a rural organizing workshop; and lead a popular education and organizing workshop.
