Preston City Council and the University of Central Lancashire continue to build links with the Mondragón Co-operative Corporation as part of their ambition to encourage co-operative values in Preston as part of the Preston Model.
A recent seminar in Preston brought together representatives from Mondragón and political, business, academic and social stakeholders to explore what Preston can learn from the Mondragón experience in terms of developing worker-owned co-operative businesses; encouraging co-operative values and principles in the workplace and in the community; and establishing a strategy for a working partnership with Mondragon.
The presentations from the seminar are available to download:
There is also a blog of the meeting written by Julian Manley called Preston Meets Mondragon.
