Co-op Congress 2018

CLES will be hosting a session on Creating Wealthy Local Communities at this year’s Co-op Congress, looking at how co-operatives can help to create and develop resilient community-based local economies.

The theme of this year’s congress is Think Different. CLES will be sharing experiences from our work in dozens of areas across the UK, before CLES Chief Executive Neil McInroy will lead a panel discussion that explores how co-ops can make the most of opportunities in future.

On the panel will be Councillor Matthew Brown from Preston City Council, Rebecca Birbeck, Director of Community Engagement for The Co-op, and Mark Sesnan from the social enterprise Greenwich Leisure Limited.
