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.
The Environmental Justice Knowledge Factory is the activist scholar arm of The Cooperative New School. The Factory focuses on producing whitepapers, plans, surveys, and other research intensive projects for community organizations, non-profits, law offices, and municipal governments. These contract research projects culminate into deliverables in the form of documents and/or reports that are intended for use in creating positive outcomes for vulnerable communities and neighborhoods under the tenets of environmental justice.
