iCooperate is a global campaign for members of co-operatives to identify themselves and share their stories in the lead up to the International Day of Co-operatives (July 7) and beyond.
Just as ants co-operate on a massive scale to the betterment of their communities, so do co-operatives work to the benefit of their members – making the ant a fitting mascot for co-operative business.
Ants are organized, work together and get the job done – all while providing for their communities.
There are several easy ways to get behind iCooperate and share your co-operative story…
Follow the Ants on twitter @iCooperate and simply post “I Co-operate because…”
Remember to use the #coops2012 tag.
Follow @icooperate and share your co-operative snaps using the tags #antlove and #coops2012.
Finally, if you are a Twitter user you can add the ant twibbon to your avatar – an identifying emblem for co-operatives everywhere! Add the twibbon here
