The Cooperative Society Project is a nonprofit initiative begun in 2015. The Project has two primary goals:
  1. To analyze the hypothesis that humans may be on the threshold of a new historical stage: one characterized by cooperation, democracy, the equitable distribution of resources, and a sustainable relationship with nature.

  2. To make recommendations for how we can increase the likelihood of moving toward a more cooperative society during the next several decades.

The means for carrying out these goals are through a book, website, newsletters, videos, articles, and social media. The book, The Cooperative Society: The Next Stage of Human History, Second Edition, was published in October 2018 and will be revised every two years, at least through 2030. We also publish six online newsletters per year, as well as occasional articles that address a variety of issues related to the cooperative society.
