CECOP is the European confederation of industrial and service cooperatives. Our aim is to bring democracy and solidarity to the workplace, sustainable economic growth, and social cohesion.
Our members are national federations of cooperatives and organisations that promote cooperatives. We represent 25 members in 15 European countries. We give voice to 40.000 enterprises and 1.3 million workers.
Giving voice to those women and men that every day put in practice what we defend and advocate for in CECOP, #COOPTALES shows a different way of doing economy where democratic and social values are drivers of a common project.
