This is a UK version of a powerful film being shown worldwide to explain why co-operating matters now, more than ever.

Over the last two weeks, co-operatives of all shapes and sizes across the UK have been celebrating Co-operatives Fortnight and encouraging people to choose co-op.

Why? Because co-ops offer a better way of running a business – one where money stays in the local community, where employees and customers get a say in how businesses are run, where people are as important as the bottom line.

There are 7,000 co-ops in the UK and this evocative short film explains why choosing co-operatives makes such a difference to people’s lives.

Watch and share.
