Idee und Praxis: organisation von gemeinsamen interessen in genossenschaften

Language: Deutsche, subtitlesEng

Idea and Practice: organizing shared interests in cooperatives

A cooperative is an association of volunteers that provides services to community members to improve living standards, overcome shared challenges and promote positive change. Based on the subsidiarity principle that puts personal responsibility above state action, cooperatives allow for community building through shared interests and values. Today a quarter of Germany's population participate in the practice transmitted within cooperatives, universities, via the German Cooperative and Raiffeisen Confederation, The Akademie Deutscher Genossenschaften, the German Hermann-Schulze-Delitzsch Society and the German Friedrich-Wilhelm-Raiffeisen Society.
