Cooperation has been the engine of the Emilia-Romagna region for over 150 years. It is a type of enterprise that allows to shape ideas and to satisfy the community’s needs while respecting sustainability principles. Its goal is to improve people’s quality of life.
To us, cooperating means taking care of the territory and people’s needs and interests. It is a way to reduce conflict and discriminations. To us, cooperating means giving everyone equal rights and opportunities to create a positive network.
Together with Confcooperative an Agci, we started the Alliance of Italian Cooperatives, a tool which proved to be very efficient in representing cooperatives’ needs to the local and national government and at European level.
Legacoop Emilia-Romagna is the association which represents, on the regional territory, the cooperatives which are members of the national Legacoop. It is part of the Italian cooperative movement and it is economically and juridically autonomous.
Legacoop Emilia-Romagna performs the following roles:
It encourages, promotes and organises cultural, promotional, educational and economic initiatives, in line with the principles and values of cooperation.
