Our Director Geof Cox, recently spoke at the WORKAROUND Conference in Berlin, a three-day symposium, workshop and community meeting, looking into various models of work organisation and community approaches that ensure life and work quality. They were looking behind the cliché of the freelance worker and exploring the old and new territories of unions and cooperations as tools for achieving common goals. They finished off the symposium with an interesting exchange of strategies and structures of self-organisation.
Amy Hale is setting up her social enterprise in the UK, called Zero Carbon Canape Catering and is keen to learn from an experienced social entrepreneur. Through our grant from the Erasmus programme she was placed with Larry Tchiou at Make Sense in France. She will be learning about project management and scaling up and will help Make Sense develop their pitch.
