Stories.coop is to begin a series of themed weeks to highlight co-operative business sectors.
The website, which is publishing a profile on a co-operative every day during the International Year of Co-operatives, has set out a list of themes to group together different types of co-operatives.
It will be starting next week with fashion co-operatives, and Euricse, the organisation in partnership with the International Co-operative Alliance on stories.coop, is calling on all co-operatives to submit their stories.
The list of upcoming themes are confirmed as:
April 16 Fashion
April 23 Europe (Cooperatives Europe meeting)
April 30 Eastern Europe and workers’ co-operatives
May 7 Organic
May 14 Media/Communications/Telecom
May 21 Fisheries
