“Working together” in local coops will help achieve global goals

10 July 2016

“Being a cooperative means working together” and can also help the world reach its ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

That’s the view of many members of one of the oldest and largest food coops in New York City.

More than a billion people are members of coops around the world, providing more than 200 million jobs.

Cooperatives, which are owned and run by their members, are one way in which communities can come together and make both a local and global impact.
