COCo promotes social justice, active citizenship, democracy and just socio-economic development by supporting the development of healthy organizations. We do so by using a made-to-measure, participatory, popular education approach to organizational development.

We focus on process and outcome. Our work is based on the following values:

  • Long-term health of nonprofit organizations and communities;
  • Accessibility and appropriateness of our work;
  • Active involvement of participants in the development of their organizations and communities;
  • Questioning, reflecting and acting;
  • Developing relationships built on trust, confidentiality, transparency and mutual respect;
  • Understanding the context of the world around us;
  • Creativity, experimentation, and fun;
  • Integrity.

In working with organizations, we strive to live these values.
