GEORGIA KELLY with CAROL BAKTER, JENNIFER TURPIN, and ERIC ARES
Highlights from the recent Praxis Seminar at the Mondragón Cooperatives in SPAIN
 
In September 2022, Praxis Peace Institute held its 11th seminar and tour at the Mondragón Cooperatives in the Basque region of Spain. This year’s seminar included not only a focus on their businesses and democratic structures but also the cultural and social aspects that have allowed the continuing success of the largest consortium of worker-owned businesses in the world.
 
Since 2008, Georgia Kelly has led 11 groups to Mondragón, Spain for week-long seminars. Included on this panel are participants in latest seminar: Carol Bakter and Jennifer Turpin, professors at the University of San Francisco, SF, CA, and Eric Ares, President of the Board of Strategic Actions for a Just Economy with United Way in Los Angeles. 
They  will talk about their experiences at Mondragón and what most inspired and impressed them. With dates for the next seminar already booked — MAY 21 – 27, 2023 — this is a great opportunity to hear about the inner workings of the most successful complex of worker-owned businesses in the world. There will be plenty of time for questions.
