This wiki site was set up at our founding event, 14th - 17th November 2016 at Wortley Hall, where 55 co-operators from 18 co-ops came together to form CoTech, a network of tech co-operatives mostly based in the UK.
All current members of CoTech are listed under the members section of the CoTech website.
Please add to the Collaboration page when a Cotech co-op works with another CoTech co-op.
Our Constitution is a basic description of how we work, what we stand for, and who can join us. It also has details on how we change the constitution.
See our page on Infrastructure and Communication.
