Welcome to FairCoop!

Hello! 😄 this document is a brief introduction to what FairCoop's ecosystem is about, how it operates, how it is organized, how we work together and communicate and how you can best get involved. Everybody who embraces FairCoop's values may participate freely and cooperate, but please, do take some time and read this guide carefully beforehand. In the meantime, don't hesitate to ask us any question in the https://t.me/askfaircoop Telegram group (in English).

A global movement of people who are in the process of setting up a self-managed, cooperative, supportive, ecological and autonomous socioeconomic ecosystem. We together aim to transition to alternative models of organization that are just and equitable. We encourage the use of FairCoin as social currency and as a value reserve of the FairCoop ecosystem. FairCoin is a digital currency that we aim to be fair, ecological, decentralized, and supportive of the common good. Also technically, FairCoin uses an ecological blockchain based on cooperation instead of competition.

Our main website is https://fair.coop/ which you will find in the following languages: Bosanski, Català, Hrvatski, Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Ελληνικά, Italiano, Kurdî, Српски, Português, Português (br), Esperanto, Magyar, Română

FairCoop is rooted in its global network of local nodes where we meet face to face to work together at the local level. Check the list of FairCoop local nodes to see if there already exists such a local group near you. If there is no local group near you yet, you may someday want to create a new FairCoop local node in your local area.

We all collaborate globally in many online working groups and assemblies. Even if you are not yet participating in a local node, you can join us to work together online. Coming from different parts of the world, participants are organized in federated open groups that focus on many different subjects: Consult the list of FairCoop Telegram groups and join whatever interests you.
