Professor Melissa Scanlan, author of, "Prosperity in the Fossil-Free Economy: Cooperatives and the Design of Sustainable Businesses," joins us online via Zoom for Mason's 2022 Next System Speakers Series.

"Prosperity in the Fossil-Free Economy: Cooperatives and the Design of Sustainable Businesses"

Drawing on both her extensive experience founding and directing social enterprises and her interviews with sustainability leaders, Melissa Scanlan provides a legal blueprint for creating alternate corporate business models that mitigate climate change, pay living wages, and act as responsible community members. With an emphasis on cooperatives and their international identity based on shared values and principles, this book reveals the power and potential of cooperating as a unifying concept around which to design social enterprise achieving triple bottom-line results: for society, the environment, and finance.
