The report is a comprehensive look at the elements of local and regional ecosystems that support cooperative growth. It was co-authored by DAWI and Project Equity as part the series Building the Inclusive Economy, published by Citi Community Development. Listen to the webinar that introduces this report and highlights the cutting-edge economic development models for city leaders and community development practicioners interested in embedding equity community wealth and sustainability into their local growth plans.  
We have also developed a companion website: to introduce our work and compile tools that support local actors to build their own cooperative growth ecosystems. 
This publication marks the official launch of the Democracy at Work Institute's Cooperative Ecosystems Program. Contact us to work together to build the ecosystem in your city or region.
