Open call for proposals that will form the learning content of the Self-organised School of Integral Cooperation


This is a call out from the Self-organized School of Integral Cooperation to send in proposals of knowledge-sharing ideas for the school to begin after the summer. We ask you to submit your proposals by Sunday 28 August!

The Self-organised School of Integral Cooperation will be an open and free space for the dissemination of theoretical knowledge and the learning of practical experience that would be useful for individuals and collectives in order to create and become involved in initiatives of self-management, solidarity and sustainability.

We invite you to make suggestions that fit with any one of these themes:

  • Political and general theoretical education through various events and seminars.
  • Specific workshops about creating and managing cooperative initiatives.
  • Thematic courses and seminars about any field which the participants in the school can consider useful and important to learn.
  • Practical action learning though participation in existing projects.
  • Practical and educational support for the participants to build their own initiatives.

The school’s values of political, theoretical and practical learning will follow the principles of integral revolution, solidarity economy, p2p society, commons transition, degrowth, localisation, and similar sociopolitical movements.

The self-organised school of integral cooperation can be hosted in different spaces – based on the topic of the seminar or workshop, either practical or theoretical.

With this call for Proposals, we will begin the open process for developing  the contents of the School.

You can send in your proposals through the web platform that has been created for the support and coordination of similar training processes or (if access to the platform is not available) through e-mail to
