Tomorrow is the first Saturday in July and therefore – as determined by the United Nations – the International Day of Cooperatives.
I’ll be involved locally, and as I am lucky to live in a town with a rich cooperative history I’ll be at events to commemorate that heritage, including a cooperative history guided walk. But I’ll also be at an event at lunchtime which is looking forward, not back. Today’s cooperatives – and we have plenty of active cooperatives in our neighbourhood – will be coming together to share their news, to network, and to work out how we can strengthen further the cooperative sector locally.
I wish you a stimulating and enjoyable International Day of Cooperatives as well.
