Cooperators is a collection of contributions by members and staff writing about their experiences of co-operation and co-operatives. Without co-operators there are no co-operatives.

Most of the contributors are involved with housing co-operatives – the biggest grouping of co-operatives in the Australian state of Victoria with 120 co-operatives and over 6,000 members. The contributors share a passionate commitment to the values and philosophy of co-operation. The basis for this passion lies in member-user ownership and control of co-operatives. Read the passion about the co-operative way – and think about your own dreams and ask yourself: why not? Read the Co-operators flyer.

Each chapter is also available as a separate html file here.  Co-operators is published by South East Housing Co-operative Ltd in Australia in October 2012.
