Venue: Croft Street Community Centre

Organiser: Social Science Centre, Lincoln

The Social Science Centre, Lincoln, is a cooperative providing no fee higher education for people who are unwilling to take on the burden of student debt and want to be part of establishing an alternative form of higher learning to the capitalist university. The Social Science Centre has no formal link to any higher education provider.

The Social Science Centre is running a workshop to explore business models that might be used to establish a cooperative form of higher education. This is part of a series of workshops, looking at other matters involved with cooperative learning linked to the cooperative movement, e.g., pedagogy, legal arrangements, governance and transnational networks.
