Forty-one members of Educational Committees of 19 primary cooperatives gathered for a workshop on June 30 and July 1, 2017 at the Philtown Hotel, Cagayan de Oro. They agreed to work together to produce common educational materials for the purpose of educating members and the public on the true nature and purpose of the cooperative.
The first common educational material to be produced is a 3-minute video production focused on individual members and the new vision of the coop movement – “all members enjoy better quality of life.” MASS SPECC will facilitate the video production, with the participation of the Education Committees. Cooperatives will share the cost of producing the video.
A Facebook group was then created for Education Committees as an online venue for sharing ideas and materials. A similar workshop for regions 9 and 12 will also be held at a later date.
