Hello! this document is a brief introduction to what FairCoop's ecosystem is about, how it operates and how it is organized; and also to the ways of communicating it uses, which vary depending on the situation and the projects involved. Everybody who embraces FairCoop's values may participate freely and cooperate, but please do take some time and read this guide carefully beforehand. In the meantime, don't hesitate to ask us any question and get involved as soon as you're ready!
What is FairCoop..?
An international community of people who are in the process of setting up a self-managed, cooperative, supportive, ecological and autonomous socioeconomic ecosystem for the transition to alternative models of organization based on justice and equity. FairCoop promotes the use of FairCoin as social capital and as a reserve of value: it is a digital currency (cryptocoin) that is fair, ecological, decentralized, and supportive of the common good.
Main website is https://fair.coop/ which you will find in the following languages.
...there is a LOT of information on the projects and tools we share and are continuing to build. It's normal at first to feel overwhelmed by so much content, technicalities and new concepts that you may not understand perfectly at first. .
Don't worry, we are here to help you! :slight_smile:️

How it all works...
Online at the global level and in person at the local nodes. Coming from different parts of the world, participants are organized mainly in federated open groups: CONSULT THE LIST OF DIFFERENT LOCAL NODES
If you are somewhere where there is no local node, we encourage you to contact others nearby so they can tell you about their experience, or you also may join directly at this welcome channel so that we can share more information
Mainly online tools are used for cooperating, such as OCP (Open Collaborative Platform), open collaborative documents and *Telegram (the main messaging platform that is currently used to organize, share updates, socialize content, discuss, hold assemblies and build up the Ecosystem).
There is a version of telegram web that you can use from any computer and web browser without any installation.
Please use this link to get started - this is a group called 'FairCoop: Ask Us Anything', and from here we can guide you into any other groups you might need to access.
