What Is A Co-op?
Illustration by Jai / UHC Collective
Without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.
Controlled by its members.
Members control the capital of their co-op.
Agreements with other organizations ensure democratic control is retained.
Edited extract from Statement On Co-operative Identity, adopted by the General Assembly of the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA) in 1995. The full text is available on the ICA website: http://www.ica.coop
So that members can contribute effectively and inform the general public.
With other co-ops locally, nationally and internationally.
For the sustainable development of their communities.
