USA Cooperative Youth Council
Date Submitted: Monday, June 1, 2015
The USA Cooperative Youth Council adopted a .coop domain - youth.coop - and use the Coop Marque to share loudly and proudly that we are a cooperative and are members of a broader movement for economic democracy and social justice.
Our domain, in particular, has proven to be an excellent opening to educate people in what a cooperative is and the value that model brings to the work that we do. We are currently in the process of developing our own line of merchandise and we plan to incorporate the Coop Marque into these items alongside our own logo, to demonstrate our identity as members of a global cooperative movement.
It is incredibly important for us to be identifiable as a cooperative entity online and in visual media. We are proud of both what we do, but we are even more so proud of how we do what we do - that is the cooperative difference.
