2012 was an exciting year for many reasons – the Diamond Jubilee, Olympics and Paralympics all took place, to name just a few. It was also the year that the United Nations recognised the important job that co-operatives do around the world and declared 2012 International Year of Co-operatives.
As one of the 1.4 million co-operatives around the world, The Co-operative Group played a major role in promoting and supporting co-operative enterprise in the UK and around the globe. We increased our commitment to local communities and celebrated the Year by hosting a wide range of exciting events and activities around the country.
Our 28 page ‘A Special Year’ commemorative publication highlights some of these achievements. From our Smile Tour campervan to the Co-operatives United world festival, from the making of The Rochdale Pioneers film to our support of the Global Poverty Project. The publication shows how by working together, co-operatives build a better world.
