Announcing the world’s first Science Communication Co-operative!

Guru Science Communi#18B440

Hello sailor! So what’s this funky new logo all about?

I’m glad you asked. The rather sleek image above is the branding for the newly formed co-operative, just launched by the fine folks who brought you Guru Magazine.  With hand-rubbing glee, we’re delighted to announce the incorporation of – drum-roll please – the Guru Science Communication Co-operative. It’s a world first and we’re proud enough to shout about it.

So that sounds all very well and good, but um… what actually is a co-operative?

Another fine question! A co-operative is a company that is owned and run by its members. In our case, members will have a say in the management and direction of the magazine (including content, style, marketing and money-making) and will be entitled to a share of the dividends. It’s a novel and very exciting way to do business.

Take a look at this video we made to explain everything:



Guru has always been a crowd-sourced magazine: a collaborative effort from people all over the world. Our special brand of ‘science-lifestyle’ wouldn’t be possible without you, and this is our way of giving it back.

If you have previously contributed to Guru in some way and are interested in becoming a member of the new co-operative, just shoot us an e-mail at info@gurumagazine.org for more information. Membership is open to anyone, so if you’re a science writer, designer, programmer or photographer, and you want to find out more then let us know.

 

The future’s bright, the future’s Guru
