Co-op Principles in Plain Language
Friday, March 23, 2012
The co-op principles are the foundation of co-operatives worldwide. To make them more accessible and easy to understand, On Co-op presents a plain-language translation of each of the seven international principles.
For example, principle 1 (voluntary and open membership) could be translated as 'all welcome - no pressure' and principle 7 (concern for community) could become 'building strong communities'.
