"Together. How cooperatives show resilience to the crisis"

together-coop"Together. How cooperatives show resilience to the crisis" is the new documentary film produced by CECOP-CICOPA Europe in the framework of the UN-proclaimed International Year of Cooperatives. It is already available online and you can watch it on the website.

The film shows the resilience of cooperatives to the crisis through testimonies of staff of four European cooperative stories located in France, Poland, Italy and Spain.

The examples filmed include a mineral water factory in Poland founded more than 60 years ago (Muszynianka), a French company in crisis acquired by its workers and transformed into a worker cooperative (Fonderie de l’Aisne), a consortium of social cooperatives in Milan providing labour inclusion to disadvantaged people and social services to thousands of citizens (Consorzio SIS) and an industrial cooperative group which is one of Spain’s main business groups (MONDRAGON Corporation).

Through testimonies of the staff of those enterprises who also own and control them, the documentary shows how they face the crisis in order to preserve jobs, local skills and economic activities.

The film is currently also available in French. CECOP-CECOP Europe is producing both Italian and Spanish versions that will be available by the end of October.
