We are building a people-centred Europe with cooperatives.
Will you be part of it?
This May European citizens will determine the direction the European Union will take by voting in the Elections of the new European Parliament.
By the people, for the people
Inspiring change in Europe and beyond, with cooperatives.
Cooperative enterprises and their values inspire change in the lives of the citizens, communities and the way we imagine our future. Like cooperatives, Europe must be built by the people, for the people.
It is now up to you, the citizens, to vote in a Parliament that will put its people first, and for you, the candidates to give cooperative enterprises ground for the next four years to change the course towards a more democratic, sustainable, fair and value driven Europe.
We invite you to discover how #CoopsInspireChange, why vote for a CoopSupporter, how to become one and build a Europe where everyone has a say.

Cooperatives are a role model for Europe
I support cooperatives because it’s the future for more and better jobs. For a more sustainable economy and therefore environment.
I support cooperatives because of their history and current practice in working for good jobs with decent pay for both their own workers and workers in their supply chain, and because as businesses with a social purpose they are committed to achieving social justice in their communities.
The cooperative economy is a central element of the life of European citizens
We need a fairer, more equal, more environmentally-just and more democratic economy: we need a more co-operative economy. I’m pleased to support Cooperatives Europe and proud to be a member of the UK Co-op Party.
I support cooperatives because we have no more time to lose to build a society and an economy which is based on the commons, which protects both people and nature
I support cooperatives because they are a fantastic method of mutual support and solidarity, that work across the UK, Europe, and the World.
