Transition Durham believes that the world would be a far nicer place if we got on with cooperating a lot more with each other. We also think that this extends to business and community action and legal structures so generally speaking we love coops and think they have a lot to offer when it comes to finding community owned solutions in our somewhat messed up world.
Co-operatives North East (CNE) is a regional co-operative council, which works to represent, promote and facilitate co-ops and co-operation.
CNE works across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and Durham to:
•extend knowledge and understanding of the work of co‑operatives, their values and principles;
•promote co‑operative models of practice for ethical businesses and community-based organisations; and
•signpost to co‑operative-related support.
Membership of CNE is free and it is open to any person, society, company, firm or association who wishes to help develop and use its services.
