About our Speaker and Subject
Georgia Kelly is the Praxis Peace Institute Founder & Director.
The Mondragon Cooperatives, located in the Basque region of Spain, are the largest and most successful consortium of worker-owned businesses in the world.
Starting with one small coop nearly 60 years ago, today Mondragon includes 120 cooperatives and about 85,000 worker-owners.
Praxis Peace Institute is dedicated to furthering the philosophy and values behind this consortium through educational outreach, seminars, and tours.
