Cooperative enterprises put forward a decentralized energy system as a better solution for today’s energy challenges. To bring this discussion to a wider audience, Cooperatives Europe will host three workshop sessions and a film viewing to look at the idea of bringing Power to the people. Bringing together diverse panels of experts and key actors in the renewable energy field, we will explore how cooperatives are reshaping the energy market.
This initiative is part of Cooperatives United, an inspiring global festival of events and exhibitions set in Manchester, UK, from 29 October to 2 November 2012 to mark the close of the UN International Year of Cooperatives. With 1 world premiere, 3 exhibitions, 10 conferences, 45 countries, 150 workshops, 200 exhibitors and 10,000 people, CooperativesUnited will inform and inspire everyone to build a sustainable economy and a better world.
