Please join us at a Human Agenda Roundtable for Human Rights:


With 100,000 workers in 120 cooperatives, no layoffs since 1956 and higher income than Spanish workers, how can we learn from the largest worker-owned cooperatives in the Western world, located in the Basque region of Spain?

Richard Hobbs: Executive Director, Human Agenda
The mission of Human Agenda is to envision a world where the human needs of all can be met, engage the community in forging local institutions that are democratic, cooperative, egalitarian, inclusive, sustainable, and kind, and assume individual responsibility to embody the change we’d like to see.

Deb Goldberg, General Manager, Natural Home Cleaning Cooperative
Natural Home Cleaning Professionals is a house cleaning cooperative serving Berkeley and surrounding areas with eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Named the Best House Cleaning in the Bay Area by Sfgate.com, Natural Home Cleaning Professionals is a worker-owned cooperative with several dozen members.

Richard and Deb recently returned from Mondragon.
