To celebrate outstanding contribution to the co-operative economy, during this, The United Nations International Year of Co-operatives, Co-operatives UK is calling on co-operators across the country to enter The Co-operative Awards 2012.
The Co-operative Awards 2012 recognise excellence, innovation and ethics of businesses and individuals across the diverse co-operative movement and celebrate co-operation and the achievements of the UK’s most pioneering and inspirational co-operators.
Award winners will be announced at the International Dinner and Awards to be held on 31 October 2012 as part of Co-operatives United - an inspiring global festival of events and exhibitions set in Manchester to mark the culmination of The United Nations International Year of Co-operatives.
The deadline for nominations for The Co-operative Awards 2012 is 10 September, and shortlisted finalists will be announced on 28 September. Find out more at http://www.uk.coop/awards2012.
