NABCO, Ireland’s national body for the co-operative housing movement, has announced its support for the 2014 European Co-operative manifesto. The manifesto has been produced by Cooperatives Europe, which represents 123 million co-operative members across the continent.
The manifesto shares a vision of:
- A Europe that focuses on a real economy, serving people’s needs and aspirations rather than financial markets,
- A Europe with a resilient and innovative economy that allows a diverse range of business models to flourish,
- A Europe in which young people are equipped to realise their entrepreneurial aspirations, and
- A Europe with an environment that supports the start-up and growth of people-centred businesses.
