In order to comply with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect 24 May, we are consolidating our contact database with that of our parent organisation, the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA). You can subscribe to the ICA’s monthly newsletter, Cooperative Insider, and stay updated on the latest news about the International Cooperative Alliance, its regions & sectors and the cooperative movement. For housing updates make sure to choose “Housing” in “Your activity area/sector” section of the signup form.

The GDPR aims to strengthen data protection for people within the EU. This regulation is overseen by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission.
