Become a co-owner

About our co-operative

New Internationalist is a multi-stakeholder co-operative owned by its workers and approximately 4,600 co-owners.

Our purpose is to champion equality and to work tirelessly to confront social, environmental and economic injustice on a global scale.

We publish an award winning magazine and run the Ethical Shop.

What is a co-owner?

All New Internationalist co-owners own community shares in our co-operative.

Co-owners receive regular updates about the organization and have the opportunity to feed into key decisions, through our AGM and Common Council.

The minimum investment is £50 ($69).

We’ve had two successful rounds of investment in 2017 and 2021, but you can still become a co-owner.
