This will be a case study presentation about Unico, a private school for self-directed learning in Bern, Switzerland. Unico is a cooperative that is run sociocratically since its founding three years ago. The presentation focuses on the organizational aspects and less on the pedagogy and work with the children. There will be ample room for questions and discussion.
