About this coop:

The Japanese Consumers' Co-operative Union (JCCU) is the national federation of consumer co-operatives in Japan.

The Japanese Consumer Co-operatives relief effort for the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. It’s not just about disasters in Japan. It also shows how cooperatives can respond to disasters in very practical ways. Since we have had so many disasters recently (earthquake, flooding, etc.), this film could be a great resource for cooperatives in disaster management.
