Dame Pauline Green told the organisation’s Centenary Conference how it introduced her to the ideas of co-operation
Dame Pauline Green, in what she said would be her last public co-operative appearance, told the Co-operative College Centenary Conference how the organisation affected her as an individual co-operator.
Co-operation came easy to her generation, she said. “I am probably one of a few in the room who remember the stories of the Rochdale Pioneers being taught in primary school. I was one of the lucky ones; shortly after this, co-operation disappeared from the curriculum.”
