Popular Online Education

The Cooperative New School is a fully online, cooperative next generation institution of higher education. The purpose of this institution is to prepare activists, organizers, and social entrepreneurs to survive and fight back in a rapidly changing world. In 2018, we are offering three semester-long courses and eight free webinars on the history, theory, and practice of social movements and community organizing.


From March through July 2018, The Cooperative New School is offering a series of 2-hour, live, and donation-based webinars. When you register for a webinar, you'll receive an email with instructions joining in. Enrollment for our fall series of 15-week long courses will open over the summer, as will our Student Owner membership option.
