Join us for a new MOOC: Economic Democracy - The Cooperative Alternative

We often hear that political democracy is the best available form of government, but democracy rarely operates within the firm. Many of us elect our politicians, but very few can elect our Boss. Especially since the Great Crash of 2008 people (possibly including you) around the world are seeking a viable alternative to hierarchical, corporate capitalism. Could a cooperative, market economy, in which firms are owned and controlled by their workers, be such an alternative? That’s the central issue we address in the MOOC. 

Massive online courses, or MOOCs, are free courses offered by universities and other post-secondary institutions, and open to anyone. All you need is access to the Internet and time to complete them! No previous MOOC experience required.

About the Presenter:

Kimberley Gage is a Certified Personal Trainer working in North Vancouver and Vancouver. 5 years ago she was sedentary, obese and awaiting back surgery. During her post-surgery rehabilitation, she went from being bed ridden to regaining 100% of her function with functional exercise. This transition inspired her to become a Personal Trainer so she could help others become more active, regardless of their abilities. She learned about the relationship between pain, posture and function and the value of movement, no mater how small. In addition to her Personal Training Certification, Kimberley has also taken Clinical Exercise & Post-Injury Rehabilitation Workshops on Muscle Training & Function and Hip, Knee and Ankle Rehabilitation. Her ideal client is someone who is has a pain, posture or movement issue or concern and wants to restore their function.
