A Sustainable and Democratic Business Model: The Mondragón Cooperatives

The Mondragón Cooperatives in the Basque region of Spain comprise the largest and most successful consortium of worker-owned businesses in the world. The Mondragón complex includes manufacturing, IT, Research and Development centers, a university system, social services, and the third largest bank in Spain with branches throughout the country. Georgia will talk about the culture and economic priorities that sustain this extraordinary complex of worker-owned businesses. Georgia Kelly has led six groups for week-long seminar/tour of the Mondragón Cooperatives through Praxis Peace Institute. She will take a 7th group next month (May 22 - 28, 2016).
