Interesting TEDxTalk about Sociocracy and group intelligence... something that I think is key to build a better (more fair) economy and society. 💁‍♂️

Hello everybody!

So, I am trying to co-found a 'union of cooperatives' in Mexico, which in theory would give me enough legal status to create autonomous 'projects' under the cooperative structure.

Each project would be autonomous (and self-managed), but all the people would be members (and co-partners) of the consortium. Anyone who has a suggestion and / or recommendation on how to make this possible?

By the way, I leave here a source of inspiration:
