The Talkin' Co-op series provides an open space to discuss issues and share information.
These member discussion sessions are an important mechanism for participatory democracy in the Co-op between annual general meetings. Whatever the theme, the aim is always to get the input of a good mix of newer and more long-standing members - and all are welcomed.
Different facilitated formats have been used and useful information from the sessions has been captured and made available to the wider membership. A number of new initiatives have resulted directly from past Talkin' Co-ops.
