See you on Thursday’s in the Main Meetcoop Meeting Room

As I mentioned in a few places, I am currently enrolled in ‘Platform Cooperatives Now!’ course by New School and Mondragon.

I am using meet.coop for Japan as my theme :smile:

This week, we are following the video below.
I think this is actually very relevant to us right now in this stage. Are there other people who also follow the exercises in the video? I can list links to other videos as well.

Below are so many links (I copied from the course) Sorry it may look a little disorganized, but I think they are so relevant to us right now.

this is great @Yasuaki thanks for sharing. I got the links before form the CoTech forum, I think and started watching No.1. I was hoping to join the course so really appreciate being able to watch the videos. I agree that it is both timely and useful :slight_smile:

Excellent! Did you know that my colleague Monica from femProcomuns is also participating? She works on the case of CommonsCloud.
