"People that can do stuff, rather than talk about doing stuff." 

This is how one visitor to Co-operatives United described "a good co-operative" when asked. Others described a co-operative as unity, shared aims, responsibility in your community, mutual benefit - just some of the descriptions of a co-operative given to young Woodcraft Folk member David, who volunteered at this huge festival of co-operation. He gathered an inspiring range of views on co-operation and co-operatives, which you can listen to on this Soundcloud page.
