Manchester Metropolitan University
All Saints Building

United Kingdom

Following a successful conference in April 2016, applications are now open for submission of abstracts for the third annual Co-operative College Education Conference which will again be held at Manchester Metropolitan University.

The theme of the conference is Learning for Co-operative Transformations with a focus on: 

  • young people
  • communities
  • society

We are currently living through a period of rapid global change where the socio-economic and political landscapes are transforming and there is a widening gap between the rich and poor. Within this there is an appetite for an alternative to traditional capitalist models, be they co-operative, social enterprise or other collaborative, collective solutions.

The conference focuses on the ways in which co-operative learning, whether formal or informal, in schools, universities, workplaces and communities can challenge inequalities and contribute to building co-operative authenticity, sustainability and resilience around the world.

The format of the conference will be varied including research presentations, panel sessions and interactive workshops.
