Co-op Hack Manchester 2019 Challenge

Posted on 11 October, 2019

We’re super excited to be sponsoring Hack Manchester 2019 and Hack Manchester Junior 2019. 

This is a great chance for us to get smart brains thinking about some of the challenges we’re grappling with. True to our values, when people work together great things can happen. 

About Co-op 

A co-operative (co-op) is a different kind of business. Our Co-op is owned by individual members and other co-ops, not big investors, and our members get a chance to have a say in how we're run.

It also means that our profits are used to give money, rewards and offers to our members and support local communities. 

We’re supporting local communities because it is one of the things our members care about.   

Our mission 

We believe that more co-operation will improve communities in the UK. 

So we’ve made it our mission to help people come together and co-operate in their local community.  

We learnt that it’s harder than it should be to make things happen in your local area, and we want to help fix that.

Our challenge 

How would you encourage people of a similar age to you, to get together to do some good in your local area? 

Things to consider: 

  • What are the types of events or activities that would bring people together? 

  • What good would it do? 

  • What’s stopping it happening? 

  • How can you make it easier? 

***We may use your idea***

We’re offering £100 Amazon vouchers to each of the winners. 

Oh, and one last thing. Don’t be boring, we like crazy ideas. Good luck!
