Covid 19 and Co-operatives - Why am I Not Surprised!

03 Oct 2020 12:00 AM | Terry MacDonald (Administrator)

As is the tradition within cooperative systems around the world, when the going gets tough, then the tough get going.  So why was I not surprised to find things happening just below the surface in the co-operative world, that confirm what I had hoped and I suspected might be the case, all along.


Many Co-operatives Around the World Are Shining!


Sure like many others enterprises some are struggling to survive. However the survey by ICA illustrates that co-operatives are leaning in, learning, and doing their part in caring fo, and supporting their members, and their communities, just as much as they are able, all around the globe. Could there really be a better time to use some of  the financial and social capital, accumulated over the years, to support those who contributed, and who at this time also need it most. 


So please see for yourself what many co-operatives around the world are up to in dealing with covid19 and its fall out:   https://www.ica.coop/en/ica-member-response


Please stay safe!
