I've always been interested in Cooperatives (as we spell it here in the 
U.S.) and always wondered why cooperative structures have pretty much been 
limited to rural electrical districts, student-founded food stores, and (!) 
bicycle shops.  How diversely spread are co-operatives in Australia?  
Can you direct me to any co-op websites that have case studies (a la the 
Mondragon region or Portugal?)  Much obliged, J.C. (John Clifford)

Did you know that Saturday, 6th July is the 80th International Day of
Co-operatives?  It was initiated by the International Co-operative
Alliance.  It's also the 8th United Nations Co-operative Day. In Perth,
it's Co-op Day and a chance to celebrate co(op)housing. 

This year, a group of people from four housing co-ops have organised a
Co-op Dance.  There'll be a band, world music DJ, dance demos, and games. 
Games!?!?  Ok, cohousers, I need some sure-fire, get-em-moving, lots of
fun for the whole family, party/dance games. 

Direct to me is fine: pov [at] 

Many thanks in anticipation.

Warmest regards
