Co-operatives – an example of the past being the key to the future

The Co-operative

Did you know that co-operatives implemented the minimum wage 90 years before it was made law in the UK? Today, with just fifty days to go before the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives, we thought we’d share a short animated film that brings to life the past, present and future of the co-operative movement. Let us know what you think of the film!

This localist approach is the embodiment of Green economics, and the Co-operative values have been seen in practice in the Co-operative’s crucial support in the fight against fracking.
