Principle 5 newsletter
reviving co-operative culture
Principle 5 started in summer 2013 and became a co-operative in May 2014. Our purpose is to:
Protect and safeguard the books, publications and archival materials placed in trust for the use of the co-operative movement and for future generations.
Make these available to all members who would wish to use them.
Provide a focus for co-operative education and culture through talks, discussions, film screenings, social events, visits to other co-operative venues, study groups etc.
Work co-operatively with other organisations and individuals who have compatible aims.
Develop the Principle 5 co-operative mapping tool,
Co-opsMap for the use of members.
Be proactive in helping to cultivate co-operative community.
Be as true as possible to the ICA Statement of Co-operative identity (Values and Principles).
Seek support from the wider co-operative movement.
