Towards the Next System: Transition to Co-Operative Commonwealth
New MOOC (massive open online course)
April 3 to May 21, 2017
Towards the Next System: Transition to Co-Operative Commonwealth is a seven week online MOOC (massive open online course) offered by Athabasca University in collaboration with Synergia. The basic course begins on April 3 and extends to May 21. The course will then stay open for another seven weeks (to July 3) for participants who are working on a practical project to submit for feedback from instructors. The course is free and will require a time commitment of approximately 7 hours per week for each of the 7 weeks. Participants work through the course modules on their own schedule.
This course presents inspiring local, regional, and international solutions in community energy, local food, social care, land tenure and cooperative finance that address current concerns for environmental and social well-being. It introduces the knowledge and practice of co-operation, economic democracy, and the commons and invites your participation in an intensive program of exploration, instruction, dialogue and practical training in systems change and transition.
