The cooperative is a project in public collaboration in the spirit of public philosophy and theology. We exist to make space for dialogue from all and any members of the public and for sake of the public good. By bringing unexpected conversation partners together, we’re aiming for genuine collaboration and real social outcomes. We do this by thinking beyond our usual patterns of work, life, and professional specialties – across faiths, across community groups and services, and across professional and academic disciplines.
