    Co-operatives and the benefit to our economy and communities

    Co-operative models create democratic, purpose lead, resilient businesses that put people and planet on an equal footing to profit but the awareness of the models and their potential is still not widely known beyond the sector. Across the business community in Scotland, change is happening and this has been hastened by the effects of Covid-19 and climate change. Employees, business leaders and communities are increasingly looking to create fairer business that looks beyond the traditional measures of success. We believe co-operative business models could play a key part in creating a fairer and more resilient economy. In episode 8 of the Reset and Rebuild podcast, we’re joined by Brain Morgan of Glasgow based co-op Jangling Space as he shares his experience alongside Suzanne Orchard from Co-operative Development Scotland.

    An Introduction to Platform Co-ops

    Digital platforms allow easy access to a variety of services such as ordering food, booking holiday accommodation, organising a taxi or downloading music and podcasts. The technology and the big brands operating them provide consumers with greater choice and convenience. It’s hard to imagine life without digital platform business but many may say it’s come at a cost to the contractors and others on the frontline of services. They can be closely associated with the gig economy that has led to precarious working conditions for many.   In episode 6 of the Reset and Rebuild campaign we speak with Ludovica Rogers of Co-ops UK to find out about platform co-ops and how these democratically owned and controlled businesses offer a fairer alternative to their members, customers and the communities they serve.
