The European Parliament holds next week the photo exhibition “Through their eyes”

20 September 2012 [ English ] français ]

CECOP – CICOPA Europe is organizing the picture exhibition “Through their eyes” to be held from 24th to 27th September at the European Parliament, with the support of the member of European Parliament Marie-Christine Vergiat, (GUE/NGL).

All the pictures have been taken by the photographer Lydie Nesvadba who captured a unique perspective through the eyes of the workers of those cooperatives. The collection shows the activities in the four cooperatives filmed in the documentary “Together. How cooperatives show resilience to the crisis”: a mineral water factory in Poland (Muszynianka), a French company in crisis bought out by its workers and transformed into a worker cooperative (Fonderie de l’Aisne), a consortium of social cooperatives in Milan (Consorzio SIS) and the cooperative group from the Basque Country, MONDRAGON Corporation. The pictures show a business vision focused on people, the central approach shared by all cooperatives.

The exhibition will take place on the 3rd floor of the Altiero Spinelli building, between the rooms 3G2 and 3G3. If you wish to visit the exhibition and you don’t have an access badge for the European Parliament, please send your request to the following email address in order to make an appointment: cecop@cecop.coop.
