CICOPA #COOPTALES is a collection of stories of cooperatives in the industry and services sector from around the world. You will find out how worker, social, and other type of cooperatives function on a day-to-day basis, their governance, their story, and most importantly, how they put into practice their cooperative values.

These are the stories of people that found in the cooperative model a democratic and just way to fulfill their needs and aspirations.
