Minneapolis and the Cooperative Youth Convergence

MINNEAPOLIS! We have been eager to make a trip out to this cooperative metropolis, so we couldn’t have been more excited when the Cooperative Youth Council (CYC) announced that their third convergence CYC3CYC (Cooperative Youth Council’s 3rd Cooperative Youth Convergence) would be in this beautiful city. While we want focus on the convergence itself, allow us a quick aside to say, Co-ops are literally everywhere here; from the Mercado Central, a merchant’s cooperative; to Seward Cafe, a non-profit cooperative workers collective; Seward Community Co-op, a great grocery boasting over 11,000 members; Chateau Co-op, a 20 story housing co-op; and the Hub bike co-op, a worker owned bike store.These were just the ones we got to see, but if you love geeking out on co-ops Minneapolis should definitely be one of your next stops. And while Minneapolis is far from perfect, there are the seeds of what thriving, equitable communities look like; and perhaps some useful models and case studies as we work to build resilient local economies.
