Become a CHE Education Co-operative Member

Are you interested in helping to co-create an education co-operative to deliver conferences and public events, to run short courses and facilitate transformative popular education, building on the CHE’s long-standing tradition as an educational institution rooted in community activism while maintaining academic rigour?

This is a great time to become a member of CHE and get involved!

We ask for a minimum membership fee of £36 per year for waged individuals; £24 for concessions (students, low waged) and £6 unwaged. If this is still financially restrictive for your membership, please get in touch. We offer free membership for staff and many volunteer posts.

Please download and complete the CHE membership form and either

  • email it to or
  • post it to The Centre for Human Ecology, Pearce Institute, 840-860 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 3UU



You can also make a regular or one-off donation to the CHE via the Charities Aid Foundation.


CHE Members’ Meetings

CHE Members’ Meetings are open to members and everyone who considers joining CHE.

For our online meetings, we use a video conferencing programme called Zoom – ideally you need access to a computer, but you can also dial in from a phone. Zoom is free to download from here. If you’d like to attend, please email and we’ll send you instructions how to join. If members would like a free training session on how to use it, please let us know!

We continue to review how we can work more co-operatively and involve more members in our various work strands – including co-operative university, fundraising or events.

We’d also like to hear from YOU: our members. If there is something you would like to propose, contribute, discuss, or a specific question you’d like answered, please let us know by Tuesday evening before the meeting, and we’ll add it to the agenda.
