Join the Co-op Future

'Join the Co-op Future' is a celebration of co-operative enterprise in Scotland. The 4 minute film encourages and inspires young people to get involved in co-operatives, either through joining existing businesses or creating one themselves. A collaboration between the Grampian committee of the Co-operative Group, University of Aberdeen, Co-operative Development Scotland and the Co-operative Education Trust Scotland, the film was produced by Mediaco-op, a worker co-operative based in Glasgow.
