Changemaker AB takes over the cooperative Din Röst, started in 1999. The cooperative will be an important part of our testing and building a fourth sector organization.
The “fourth sector” is an emerging sector of the economy, which consists of “for-benefit” organizations that combine market-based approaches of the private sector with the social and environmental aims of the public and non-profit sectors
By Din Röst, we make a foundation, together with the owners of the cooperative, for the application to start a new Folk High School (Folkhögskola). We´re also looking for cooperation in projects internationally and in the European Union.
Connected to Changemaker is already the NGO Bar Social and the digital “room” honkplease.com, which can be an editor, opinion former, event maker or just a square, where you meet. We don´t know yet, we´re testing it. We are partners in different European projects like developing Agri-cooperatives knowledge of doing business, curating stories to impact society, digitalisation of knowledge in weaving and knitting, and using agriculturing helping people with mental illness to get back in society and jobs.
– The cooperative will be an important part of our businesses and aims, says CEO Tom Løyche.
