Cooperation 2015; Connecting as Peers & Networks

Are you looking for new ideas, connections, and options? Do you want to connect with others exploring creative models and bridges to a better future here in Chicago?

Paradigm shifts in technology, economics, politics, local organizing, global movements and even spirituality pervade today’s world.  Moving to a society that is peer-to-peer, where people can directly help one another, is the real “sharing economy.” We want sharing that improves our quality of life by connecting us with peers to gain access to the resources and experiences we need and can provide.

It’s time for an exchange of ideas and opportunities, sharing our lives locally and connecting to the global phenomena that can provide us with the abundance for which we all hope.

Please join us at the Institute of Cultural Affairs on Saturday, February 28th, from 10am-3pm to share, brainstorm, connect and rejoice. 

Join us! You will:

  • Learn what is happening globally and locally in peer-to-peer (P2P)
  • Connect with others who are exploring creative models here in Chicago
  • Know where we can collectively take action to improve equality and quality of life

People from community organizations, local cooperatives and credit unions will meet and exchange ideas with folks that are working on peer-to-peer organizing in the global village.
