From our friends in the SCSI
I hope this message finds you all well. I am writing on behalf of the Society of Co-operative Studies Ireland (SCSI) to ask for your assistance.
The SCSI are embarking on an information gathering exercise to document the experiences of the co-operative sector across this island during this public health crisis. Everything has been affected – health, work, leisure, shopping etc – and thoughts are turning to the question of what happens next. Already debate and discussion on what our social and economic situation will look like in the coming months and years is taking place.
At the SCSI we believe that the co-operative sector has a role, and duty, to play a prominent part in ensuring whatever type of society that emerges is one characterised by economic democracy, fairness, and a genuine concern for our communities.
As part of the Society’s remit we aim to educate and inform citizens, practitioners, and policymakers about the important work our sector undertakes. Therefore we would invite all co-operators across Ireland to complete this short survey:
Information we receive will be used by the SCSI to plan and carry out future events and outputs as we aim to promote the co-operative sector in the future.
If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch with myself. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
