About From the Ground Up

What is the cooperative movement’s vision for our economy? How can we protect land and homes from market speculation? How can that land form the basis for a new economy beyond capitalism, one based on living beings needs and ecology? 

From the Ground Up is a visionary conference about the community control of land, housing, and the economy that will seek to answer these questions, renew our vision, and broaden our collective ambitions. It is organised by citizen activists and solidarity economy pioneers in Milton Parc and broader Montreal, and will be held on April 12–14, 2019, as the follow up to an all day conference in November 2018.
