In this episode, we explore why we need governance. Kyle and Aasa from Co-operatives First talk to Paul Thompson, Research Officer at the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, and creator of the Good Governance Matters course.

We talk about the actors involved in governance, some of the challenges involved in getting governance right, and why governance is like steering a ship…and also marriage.
