The latest edition of The Hive is now available. It focuses on four ways to celebrate co-ops.
- Share your #CoopStories – It is Co-operatives Fortnight 2017. During this period, running from 17 June-1 July, the team are asking people and co-ops to share stories of how working together has made a difference. The aim is to create a wealth of stories to raise awareness about co-operatives.
- People from across the co-op sector and beyond will come together on 30 June-1 July to reimagine the economy at Co-op Congress 2017. With keynote speakers on the ‘gig economy’, the launch of a long-term strategy to grow the co-op sector, workshops on the big issues like social care, community development and technology, as well as Dragon’s Den style pitches, Congress is fantastic event. Book your place now.
- These are the closing days of voting for Co-operatives UK’s annual Co-operative of the Year Awards. Vote in three categories – Leading, Growing and Inspiring. It’s a wonderful celebration of co-operation. Voting closes 22 June and the winners will be announced at Congress.
