Learn about the 7 DisCO Principles and Values

The 7 DisCO Principles are the backbone of the DisCOVerse and shared across all DisCOs. The Values are more flexibles and can be adapted as needed.

DisCO adds seven additional principles to the original cooperative seven to reunite cooperativism with its commons origins and better prepare it for technological futures.

Values-Based Design

Nurturing social and environmental production

Whole-Community Governance

Extending decision making and ownership

Rethinking Global/Local Economics

Make locally and share knowledge globally

Carework is the Core

Origins and Flows of Value
