According to the Social Business Australia, Hugh Jackman is a supporter of cooperatives. "I know from first hand experience making the Seeds of Hope documentary for World Vision that co-operatives give people the practical means to change their lives for the better."
The United Nations has declared 2012 the International Year of the Cooperative, but you don’t have to travel the world to see how successful the cooperative business model can be. In Indianapolis on October 28, leaders from a variety of cooperatives will gather for the fifth annual Indiana Cooperative Summit.
The International Year of Cooperatives (2012) is a fantastic opportunity for cooperatives around the world to raise consumer awareness of their individual co-ops, the cooperative business model, and the important role that co-ops play in serving local and global communities.
