Regional groups

Regional groups allows us to decentralize the structure and functioning of Coopernico.
They allow a closer relationship of the cooperants with their regions, as well as local representation of Coopérnico and the identification of local investment and action opportunities.
The forming of a Regional Group is a relatively easy process requiring the following steps:

  • Have at least 3 members to form a Steering Group
  • Present a proposed group constitution containing a brief plan of activities to be aproved by the administration.
