2012 – The International Year of Cooperatives

If you want to be incrementally better, be competitive. If you want to be exponentially better, be cooperative:

The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation. ~ Bertrand Russell

Cooperatives are a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility. ~ Ban Ki-moon

“Co-operative enterprises provide the organisational means whereby a significant proportion of humanity is able to take into its own hands the tasks of creating productive employment, overcoming poverty and achieving social integration.”
~ Boutros Boutros-Ghali
