Re-Organise is a project aimed at promoting alternative ways of organising. Organising differently means critically examining the habits, norms, expectations, and demands of the mainstream ways of doing business and proactively exploring and experimenting with new ones.

This is one small piece of a much larger struggle to help us re-organise not just our organisations, but how we live together as a society.

From the Introduction:

"In this booklet, we'll be taking a whistle-stop tour through some of the key organisational issues that alternative organisations—such as cooperatives and other collectively owned buisnesses—face. In a world of increasing environmental destruciton and social injustice, more and more organisations and businesses are trying to make their services and products as ethical as possible. There are many ways to do this, and different degrees to which claims to being ethical might be deemed legitimate. The focus of this booklet, like the others in the series, is not so much on what organisations do, but on how they do it. Regardless of what businesses make or provide, then, we need to ask about their internal practices and structures if wereallyh wan tot challenge business-as-usual."
