The project Climate Circular Coop was presented at HEC Montreal’s International Institute for Cooperatives Alphonse-et-Dorimène-Desjardins.

For three months our Ph.D. Candidate researcher Asia Guerreschi will stay at the HEC Montréal‘s Institut international des coopératives Alphonse-et-Dorimène-Desjardins focusing on circular economy and eco-innovation practices by cooperatives. Our research will look not only to continue building an international network of researchers and cooperatives but also to share online some of the best practices of the region of Québec that we will contact.

Additionally, during these months Asia will continue her interviews to tell #coopstories around the world focusing on realities in Canada, Quebec, or just Montreal!
