The film TOGETHER available to watch free online!
October 29, 2012
The documentary “TOGETHER - how cooperatives show resilience to the crisis” is officially launched and you can watch the full version in English and French here!
The film shows the resilience of cooperatives to the crisis through testimonies of staff of four European cooperative stories located in France, Poland, Italy and Spain. CECOP-CECOP Europe is producing also both Italian and Spanish versions that will be available by the end of October.
The examples filmed include a mineral water factory in Poland founded more than 60 years ago (Muszynianka), a French company in crisis acquired by its workers and transformed into a worker cooperative (Fonderie de l’Aisne), a consortium of social cooperatives in Milan providing labor inclusion to disadvantaged people and social services to thousands of citizens (Consorzio SIS) and an industrial cooperative group which is one of Spain’s largest business groups (MONDRAGON Corporation).
