Joanna Humka, Dobrze Cooperative
She works within climate education in the Center for Citizenship Education. In January 2020 she moved to Warsaw and immediately joined the cooperative whose activity she had followed for several years. Asia keeps looking for her place in the world and for ways to encourage people to build a better world for all beings.
Joining the cooperative made it remarkably easy to meet people who hold similar values, and treat others in a similar way as I do. For me, the cooperative means not only good and ecological food for which producers are decently reimbursed, but also practicing grass-roots democracy, discussions on the future of the initiative, talking to people in the shop, many wonderful connections, as well as experience in coordinating an educational project concerning social and solidary economics. The cooperative shows that it is possible to live differently, that a different world – more humane, based on social bonds and mutual help – is still possible.
