Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think co-operatives are one of the promising models to promote.

I've been working for a few years with the International Co-operative Alliance which unites, represents and serves co-operatives worldwide. They have launched an initiative named "Global 300" to promote the model and role of big co-operatives in the framework of globalisation. This initiative was launched in Lyon, in October 2006.

Here is the Global 300 initiative brochure, and the list of the world's 300 biggest cooperatives.

I am currently working with them on the creation of a high-level education scheme (MBA-like) for the managers of co-operatives. It will aim at developing a culture of management which includes the values of the co-operative movement and a critical approach to the dominant schools of thought in economics and business.
