We've partnered with Co-operative Energy and the Phone Co-op for Greenbelt 2017 to host a brand new venue and programme called The Exchange.  The Exchange will focus on Enterprise for the Common Good and will provide a space to meet and discuss common issues facing cooperatives, and social and community enterprises.

Cliff Mills, of Anthony Collins Solicitors, has written a guest blog for Greenbelt 2017, which explains more about our participation and answers the question: Is it possible for something other than the pursuit of private gain to be the force that powers business?  You can read the blog here
