Cocom Group waardeert cultuur

Cocom Group draagt kunst en cultuur een warm hart toe. Omwille van de maatschappelijke relevantie van cultuur, maar ook vanuit ons geloof in ontluikende talenten, in het bijzonder van mensen met – om het even welke – belemmering. Cocom ondersteunt dus cultuur, maar laat ook kunstwerken ontwikkelen, meer bepaald via de zustercoöperatieve GOCA. Verder besteedt Cocom via het speciale Elexir-programma veel aandacht aan de Paralympics. Wij ondersteunen: BE A FAN of Special Olympics. Al deze bijdragen sluiten naadloos aan bij onze visie, en garanderen haar handhaving op lange termijn.
