Israeli kibbutz adapts to modern times

Communal settlements struggle to cope with social change and doubts over economic relevance.

Almost a billion people worldwide work in the co-operative sector, a lifestyle that includes non-profit community organisations and businesses that are owned and managed by the people who uses its services.

Israel’s kibbutzim (communal settlements in Hebrew) are an example of co-operatives that have been forced to adapt to modern times. 

As part of Al Jazeera’s series on the state of global co-operatives, Al Jazeera’s Cal Perry visits Israel’s oldest communal settlement, Kibbutz Nachshon.
