From April 18 to 22, the Workers Economy Conference held the first meeting of it's newly-formed International School of Self Management. The meeting took place in the The Florestan Fernandes School of the Landless Workers Movement (MST) in São Paulo, Brazil.Yolanda Millan, solidarity economy education coordinator for the Center for Global Justice, participated in the meeting and will share her reflections.Recognizing that self-management is a long process that does not happen overnight, the 4-day meeting brought together workers and activists from different places to discuss the kind of society they want to build and their experiences of struggle and strategies in areas such as:    • self-management,    • territorial autonomy,    • gender equality,    • decommodification of life,    • popular education    • and cooperative ownership.
