Why should private corporations profit from exorbitant household power bills, ripping off workers and cooking the planet? What if we could supply our energy needs cleanly, fairly, affordably, and co-operatively? Community energy projects, electricity cooperatives and public-ownership campaigns are already empowering many communities around the country and the world.

Join this lively forum with international & local community leaders who are helping to take the power back, and be introduced to Cooperative Power Australia – a brand new enterprise cooperative for Australia’s energy sector.

SPEAKERS

Mathieu Richard – Chairperson of Enercoop, a French cooperative electricity retailer which supplies only renewable energy to its customers.
Imogen Jubb – National Manager of the Beyond Zero Emissions ‘Zero Carbon Communities’ Project
Godfrey Moase – Assistant General Branch Secretary at the National Union of Workers & co-director of the new ‘Cooperative Power Australia’ project.
Hosted by Earthworker Cooperative board-member Katherine Cunningham.
