We call it different names, the work we do to humanize our workplaces, to build an inclusive economy and provide economic, social and racial justice: cooperative economy, solidarity economy, economic democracy, “movements moving together” organizing for economic and racial justice…this issue of GEO explores the different ways that people are cooperating in creating jobs and work we love, farmers markets, unions, building alternative economies, creating a more just society and rebuilding a city. This issue coincides with is the third Advancing the Development of Worker Cooperatives discussion conference on ways to increase worker cooperatives—by looking at the environment or “ecosystem,”  if you will—where cooperatives are born and thrive.  How can we use what we are all doing to advance the work of building cooperation in all its forms? Like our regional associations, this issue will continue to expand.
