The Global Co-operative Development Group Inc has changed from being a traditional co-operative organization into an online development network. Our new name is now the Global Co-operative Development Network.  Our Co-operative Enterprise brand remains unchanged. We continue to have the same purposes and objectives which are to:

  1. Provide a space for co-operative practitioners, researchers, developers, and educators to contribute their experience and expertise to support the development of co-operative enterprises globally.
  2. Help promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of the unique aspects of the co-operative enterprise business model.
  3. Stimulate positive growth in and across co-operative systems of enterprises through research and development, evaluation, and strategic intelligence activities and initiatives.
  4. Acquire or create and deliver information technologies which help to empower, inform, involve, educate and connect co-operatives and their members.
