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.
Are you an avid instragram user? We invite you to share your co-operative snaps to Twitter.
The most creative, quirky and inspiring images will feature on stories.coop ‘story of the day.’
A special ant twibbon will be released in the lead-up to the International Day of Co-operatives on July 7. The twibbon acts as an icon in the corner of your twitter avatar.
The ant will serve as an identifying emblem for co-operatives across twitter – making a powerful and co-operative online statement.
