Blueprint for a Co-operative Decade

170 January – February 2014

The Blueprint for a Cooperative Decade is the overarching agenda for the ICA, its members, and the cooperative movement. It is a five-point plan with individual strategies:

  • Elevate participation within membership and governance to a new level.
  • Position cooperatives as builders of sustainability.
  • Build the cooperative message and secure the cooperative identity.
  • Ensure supportive legal frameworks for cooperative growth.
  • Secure reliable cooperative capital while -guaranteeing member control.

The strategy intends to take the cooperative way of business to a new level. At the heart of the blueprint is the “2020 challenge” which is that by 2020 -cooperatives will become:

  • The acknowledged leader in economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
  • The business model preferred by people.
  • The fastest growing form of enterprise.

    This is a wonderful document that covers the 5 key areas where co-ops need to excel if we are going to grow the movement: Participation, Sustainability, Identity, Legal Framework & Capital. 40 pages of co-op goodness.
