In this first edition of the CoopCamp Awards, a total of 9 entities have presented, 5 to the recently created category and 4 to the consolidation category, of which the Jury has decided to award
The jury has valued the transformation process from INSTA to a work cooperative, which has chosen to offer an environmental law service that guarantees adaptation processes in areas such as environmental health and education and because it is an entity that is part of the Network of Social Economy and collaborates with start ups in Camp de Tarragona region. In addition, it facilitates its services to NGO and associations in environmental legal advice.
On the other hand, the Liana de Trípode Cultural Association Project has obtained the first prize in the consolidation category because it is a non-profit entity that through the LIANA project promotes the articulation of a self-managed network and the intercooperation of agroecological Consumidorxs – distribuïdorxs – producers in the regions of Priorat, Baix and Alt Camp and Conca de Barberà, as well as the creation of a physical store in Arbolí, a web store and a market place.
In the current period of economic and social crisis, cooperativism represents more than ever a tool for labor self-organization, where people become the center of the project, in which members and workers organize themselves horizontally and equally.
