In the time that Decolonising Economics has been running and through the relationships we’ve built, we’ve found that there’s a lot of energy in BPOC communities for Cooperative development and exploring forms of collective and community ownership models. We have found that cooperative development is a political and economic strategy that supports the aims of building a racial justice economy. Through connecting with Elders, we have found that this work has a long and rich legacy in communities of colour in the UK, with the first community houses/credit unions being formed by the Windrush generation. Elders have expressed a need to continue this legacy but that they struggle galvanising support from younger generations in cooperative development.
