Beginning May 9, the University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives will be presenting a webinar series that explores how cooperatives are being used to address a variety of unmet needs in rural and urban communities. Presenters who have worked with local community members to develop cooperative solutions will give brief case studies, followed by a Q&A session.
Who should attend? Economic and community development professionals, cooperative developers, and interested community members.

Supporting the care needs of seniors who are aging in place may also present challenges. Find out how communities in rural Wisconsin and North Dakota are using the cooperative model to address their child and senior care needs.
