Beautiful Solutions maps out cooperative projects around Aotearoa that satisfy the needs of both people and the planet through cooperation. The best cooperative solutions submitted will be showcased on the website (with the consent of those involved).
We are looking for solutions that
Are based on cooperation
Provide for genuine needs of people and planet (rather than making profits)
Are accessible to all
(We’re not really looking for ideas for new technologies or private business ideas, but yes we want to hear about genuinely cooperative models, like worker owned co-ops)
“Beautiful Solutions lays out an interconnected matrix of Solutions, Values, Theories and Stories designed to promote and support the development of participatory civic, cultural and financial institutions that build community wealth and ownership in a manner that is restorative to ecological and societal health.” – taken from the Beautiful Solutions international website
