The Greek Journalists' Newspaper encourages Greek cooperatives to join Cooproute

The Greek worker cooperative Journalists' Newspaper published recently an article dedicated to Cooproute.

The article illustrates the raison d'ĂȘtre of Cooproute, thats allows visitors to "experience a region through those entities that help to preserve the cultural tradition, the local production and the general heritage of a country". Furthermore, some of the destinations belonging to Cooproute are illustrated in the article.

The Journalists' Newspaper encourages Greek cooperatives to join Cooproute. Indeed, "despite the long history of the cooperative movement in Greece, the many innovative enterprises in the country and the huge local production and cultural tradition, Greek cooperatives are not among the 82 cooperative destinations proposed by Cooproute", regrets Christina Pantzou, author of the article.

The Journalists' Newspaper is a cooperative of journalists, most of them former editors of a well known Greek newspaper that due to the crisis and missmanagement closed in 2012. Today, the cooperative associates more than 130 worker members.
