Consortium

Mission:

The Platform Cooperativism Consortium (PCC) supports the cooperative platform economy through research, experimentation, education, advocacy, documentation of best practices, technical support, the coordination of funding, and events.

Built upon the concept of platform cooperativism, the Consortium is anchored in collective ownership, democratic governance, a decisive commitment to the global commons, inventive unions, social justice, as well as ecological and social sustainability.

Contributors from academia, platform co-op enterprises, independent software developers, artists, designers, lawyers, activists, publishing outlets, and funders, respond to genuine needs in the digital economy.

Who Can Join?

Upstarts, foundations, municipalities, advocacy groups, unions, established co-ops, coop networks, and individual workers and co-op members can become contributors if they can document that they genuinely share the values and sense of purpose of the PCC. They must be willing to actively contribute to the activities of the PCC.
