CONFERENCE AND EVENTS
On 9th February, the Scottish Parliament held a celebratory reception for the United Nations's International Year of Co-operatives.
The UK is widely considered the birthplace of the co-operative movement and the first successful co-op shop was opened in 1844 in Rochdale, North West England.
Rochdale has been named World Capital of Co-operatives. The town was awarded the honorary title at a global meeting of more than 2,000 co-operatives in Mexico.
