Hi everybody from a New Co-op (needing help)!
Our names are Manlio Pertout and Martha Stephens, we live in Fife and we are founders and directors of a new Workers' Co-operative Company called The Human Exploring Society. We established the co-operative at the end of 2020 and at the moment we are just undertaking our first activities (official website and social media channels).
The purpose of our activities is to create instruments and spaces for a Community of People working in the Arts, Science, Journalism and Business who want to offer Energy and share Ideas about worldwide issues related to the Rights of Human Beings and the Rights of the Planet, making them universally understandable, and encouraging people to spread passionate messages and take practical action. Maybe the closest "label" to our project is a media-co-op.
We would love to share experiences and ideas with other Workers Coops and receive suggestions about professionals (accountants, lawyers) who have knowledge about the coops' needs and can help along the way.
We are really happy having found such a big community like this, and specifically we are interested in having a contact with a media coop to better understand how to set some contracts.
We would really appreciate if you could give us some help.
Thank you very much!
Manlio and Martha
