David Smith’s role in setting up Wales’ Social Co-operative Development Forum

Following a query arising from the last post, Pat Conaty writes:

“The work here in Wales to set up the Social Co-operative Development Forum was kicked off by David Smith about four years ago now. He organised the speaking tours for the two Canadian social co-operative and solidarity co-operative experts, Jean Pierre Girard from Montreal and John Restakis from Vancouver. They each did Wales wide speaking tours over two separate weeks about six months apart. David then worked with me and a few others to build networks based on their inspiration. We owe him a big debt of gratitude.
