What is a Platform Cooperative?
Platform cooperativism is a growing international movement that builds a fairer future of work. It’s about social justice and the bottom line. Rooted in democratic ownership, co-op members, technologists, unionists, and freelancers create a concrete near-future alternative to the dominant sharing economy.
Making good on the early promise of the Web to decentralize the power of apps, protocols, and websites, platform co-ops allow households with low and volatile income to benefit from the shift of labour markets to the Internet.
The model certainly does not solve all social problems and inequality, with a few clicks, but is a very important contribution to invigorating people-centered innovation, in combining the rich heritage and values of cooperatives with new Internet technologies.
