About this event
There is an ongoing debate around the differences and similarities between social enterprises and cooperatives. This course will assist participants to understand these terms and to map the fields of practice in which cooperatives and social enterprises operate.
Participants will be introduced to tools and resources that will enable them to find and access resources within the cooperative and social enterprise fields of practice.
- By the end of this course participants will:
- Understand the similarities and differences between cooperatives and social enterprises
- Be able to map the resources and networks within social enterprise and cooperative fields of practice
- Have access to tools for their cooperative to mobilise the resources needed to flourish.
