To celebrate this landmark publication, the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) will support two days of events in Melbourne that combine engagement with leaders of co-operative thought and practice and opportunities for skill-sharing for those interested in co-operatively building the Australian economy for the common good.
The events are:

6-8 pm, Friday, 28 April 2017, Kelvin Club, 14-30 Melbourne Place, Melbourne VIC 3000

“A present, however splendid it may be, bears the imprint of its expiry to the extent that it becomes separated from the future” – Fr. José María Arizmendiarrieta Madariaga, founder of the Mondragon worker co-operative movement in Basque Spain.
