Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Interview with the President of the Spanish Confederation of Social Economy Enterprises

UCOMUR is the representative entity of worker cooperatives and Murcia is the Spanish Region with the highest number of cooperatives per 100,000 inhabitants. We have managed to create an ecosystem of cooperative social economy spread throughout the region. There are more than 1,600 cooperatives that employ, between members and workers, more than 80,000 people.
