For sustainable jobs, for community, and for the environment

Earthworker Cooperative brings together people from diverse backgrounds in practical action to solve the social and environmental problems faced by communities and the planet. We provide common ground where trade unionists, environmentalists, small business people and others work together in common cause.

Our goal is to establish a network of worker-owned cooperatives committed to sustainable enterprise throughout Australia. We believe social and environmental exploitation are intertwined, and that the problems of climate change, job insecurity and growing inequality must be tackled simultaneously, through greater grassroots economic ownership.

Earthworker’s pilot project is the establishment of Australia’s first worker-owned factory, making renewable energy appliances and components. Located in the heart of Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, the Earthworker Energy Manufacturing Cooperative (formerly Eureka’s Future) is part of ensuring a just transition for communities affected by the move from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy.
