Summary :

The Economic Democracy Training Series is a joint project between the

Bronx Cooperative Development Initiative and the MIT Community Innovators

Lab. This 10-session, 20-hour series of workshops will introduce community members, residents, youth, and community leaders to major concepts in economic development, political economy, and, most importantly, economic democracy. The training series was originally developed as a tool for leaders in the Bronx to use

for the purposes of galvanizing their communities to take a hands-on, democratic approach to local community economic development that would pave the way for all residents, not just those who currently control a majority of the resources,

to thrive.
