The image is an illustration of The Cleveland Model of sustainable business. A map-style illustration features arrows connecting different buildings. The buildings are marked "anchor institution," "worker cooperatives," "surrounding community," "non-profit corporation," and "municipal government."

How can large businesses meet the needs of workers, communities and customers? How can communities maximize the benefit of a green new deal, or the local purchases of large economic institutions? How can businesses build resilience in the face of recession?

Join us to hear a worker-owner and an executive from Cleveland’s own Evergreen Cooperatives talk about models of large-scale worker-owned and community-benefiting businesses that are creating change for returning citizens, immigrants, and economically disinvested communities around the country, the world, and here in Northeast Ohio. 

There will be a Q&A-style discussion after the talk.

This event is facilitated by the Office of Environmental Sustainability and Evergreen Cooperatives in conjunction with Ecolympics. To learn more about Ecolympics visit oberlin.edu/ecolympics.
