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.
