Hope for a Cooperative Life: Forecasting Cooperative Trends

(p.179) Conclusion
Cooperatives in New Orleans

Anne Gessler

University Press of Mississippi

The conclusion assesses the role and significance of each cooperative within the broader New Orleans cooperative movement. Locally responsive, internationally inspired New Orleanian cooperative-city partnerships continue to provide a scalable model of equitable bioregionalism promoting economic and environmental sustainability. Rooted in specific neighborhoods and organized by longtime community activists, glocalized cooperatives intimately understand resident needs and draw on a common community identity and mutual aid traditions to recruit members. Ultimately, New Orleans’s internationally-inspired cooperatives can be models for other marginalized communities seeking democratic alternatives to both free market globalism and unchecked nationalism.
