Evergreen Cooperatives Talks Sustainable Business Models

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Hallock Auditorium, Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies
122 Elm Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

How can large businesses meet the needs of workers, communities and customers? How can communities maximize the benefit of a green new deal, or the local purchases of large economic institutions? How can businesses build resilience in the face of recession?

Join us to hear a worker-owner and an executive from Cleveland’s own Evergreen Cooperatives talk about models of large-scale worker-owned and community-benefiting businesses that are creating change for returning citizens, immigrants, and economically disinvested communities around the country, the world, and here in Northeast Ohio. 

There will be a Q&A-style discussion after the talk.

This event is facilitated by the Office of Environmental Sustainability and Evergreen Cooperatives in conjunction with Ecolympics. To learn more about Ecolympics visit oberlin.edu/ecolympics.
